About the Session

Most leaders will tell you that mentoring is a critical part of what they do, and most of us would agree that mentorship is critical for organizational success, but what do we mean when we talk about mentorship? Furthermore, how do we create a culture of mentorship in our organizations? In this program, we will explore the theoretical construct of mentorship, breaking it into its component parts of coaching, psychosocial support and sponsorship so that program participants have a better understanding of the activities they are undertaking and why they are important. We will discuss the traditional mentorship relationship, peer mentorship and reverse mentorship and how these mentoring relationships differ and when they are appropriate. We will then discuss the nature of distributed mentorship, which occurs when an organization adopts and nurtures a culture of mentorship and its importance in creating and sustaining a high-performing culture.

Learning Objectives:

  • Analyze how mentorship shapes an individual’s career success.
  • Discuss how a culture of mentorship can be developed to enhance organizational success.
