Mentoring And Its Benefits
it a two-way street based on mutual trust and respect. It is not always easy to
create this type of relationship, but when you get it right, the benefits can
be significant for all parties concerned.
For the mentor, it is an opportunity to pass on their wealth of experience to a new generation. It is also a means through which they can challenge themselves to embrace new ideas and ensure that they continue to operate at the top of their game. For the mentee, learning from a more experienced colleague can be one of the most effective ways to develop the key skills needed to be successful within the legal profession. Mentoring can also represent enhanced long-term career planning on the part of a mentee who seeks wider career opportunities and greater influence within their firm.
In addition, the benefits to the firm cannot be underestimated; a formal mentoring program which runs in conjunction to the informal relationships which practitioners develop amongst themselves can prove crucial for retention and career development.
This session will offer practical guidance on how to establish and maintain a successful mentoring relationship or programme.
