Six Roles of the Mentor

Professional Registration Support Mentoring

One of the challenges faced by all Professional Bodies is the reducing numbers of young graduates prepared to go through the rigorous process of becoming professionally registered, and the second is that the time taken to finally achieve their registration has in many cases, significantly more than doubled the previous norm from only 20 years ago (typically a previous process of 3 years has grown to around 7 years).

This video introduces a Professional Registration Support Mentoring approach, using the tried and trusted methodology of Structured Mentoring.

The video explains the process and benefits to not only the graduate as Mentee, but also the Mentor, and the Organisation.

Mentoring in Academia

Mentoring in an Academic Environment is vastly different to Mentoring in a typical Corporate Environment. The process of Mentoring young academics is further complicated by the fact that there are often amorphous and blurred boundaries between Supervision and Mentoring, and in most Academic Institutions, there is also the need for Mentoring of the Support and Administration staff. This video gives a brief overview of some of the complexities involved in Mentoring in an Academia and offers some insights and tips gleaned from managing several large scale Academic Mentoring Programmes in various Academic Institutions over the 6 last years…

The video covers:

  • Important Questions and Observations
  • Different Mentoring Options and Solutions
  • Relationship and Collaborative Mentoring
  • Using Experiential Competency Modelling
  • Using the M4S Mentors Toolkit™

M4S Mentors Toolkit™ – The 6 Sources of Learning

The 6 Sources of Learning tool is a simple technique from the M4S Mentors Toolkit™ – CORE Tools Set, which is designed to assist Mentors “identify optimum associative learning opportunities” which ensures rich, multi-sensory, associative learning, thereby enhancing learning and memory formation and retention in their Mentees:

  1. Experiential LearningGuided Experiences and Practical Learning
  2. Learning MaterialsPhysical and Virtual Learning Materials
  3. Learning AssignmentsFocused Research and Short Learning Projects
  4. Organisation SpecificOrganisational Policies, Procedures and Manuals
  5. Classroom TrainingClassical In-House or Public Workshops & Courses
  6. People and BenchmarksRole Models, Experts and Class Leaders

M4S Mentors Toolkit™ – Retrospective Analysis technique

The Retrospective Analysis technique is a simple 8 step questioning technique from the M4S Mentors Toolkit™ – CORE Tools Set, which is designed to assist Mentors “review the key lessons learned” on current or recent projects and events. The technique provides a practical and effective means of sharing and reviewing the key aspects of the “experiential wisdom” contained in every event’s story.

M4S Mentors Toolkit™ – Intentional Story Telling technique

The Intentional Story Telling technique is a structured, yet simple 11 step story preparation and telling technique from the M4S Mentors Toolkit™ – ADVANCED Tools Set, which is designed to assist Mentors “share their experiential wisdom” on current, or recent projects and events. The story telling technique provides a practical way of ensuring that the critical processes involved in “brain sensitised learning and memory formation” are mobilised during the process and that the essential balance between content and context is optimised through emotional connection.
