Project management mentoring | how to develop mentoring partnerships

Mentoring is a development opportunity that allows you to set regular, formal meetings with a mentor who can help you reach your goals. Mentoring is different to coaching and teaching in that mentors have subject matter expertise; they can help you solve problems by sharing their experiences with you.

This video on mentoring in project management explores the steps you need to take when looking for a mentor. You must be careful in selecting the right mentor for you – organising phone calls to figure out who you have good rapport with can help. Having a clear goal and setting time aside to properly commit to a mentoring partnership is vital for success. If you’re a mentor and want mentees, then it’s important you make time for them, build trust and prepare properly for sessions. Find out more about mentoring in project management here:
