Mentoring is a supportive learning relationship between a person who shares their knowledge, experience and wisdom with another person in order to support their professional development.
Our mentors can help you reach your leadership and management potential, as well as offering relationships to develop you within leadership-related technical expertise. Our mentors are recruited from various experience levels from managers through to executives and system/regional leaders. They will have a background in one or more specific specialist areas, for example: Operational Management, Nursing, Human Resources and Organisational Development, Finance, Medicine etc.) and will have worked in one or more different sectors of the NHS, the wider health and care system, or the private sector.
You may be seeking out mentoring for a variety of reasons, for example:
- Executive Mentoring: you may be an aspiring executive director and have identified the need to be supported and challenged by someone with experience in a similar role to prepare you to take on an executive position.
- New to leadership: you may have been appointed to a senior management role and want the support of an experienced senior manager to help you tackle new challenges within that role.
- Wider sector perspectives: as part of your NHS career you may have spent your career within acute hospitals and need a mentor to help you to understand the leadership challenges within the community to widen your knowledge of the health and care system.
- Technical specialist skills: you may need someone with experience in a specialist area to help you to develop your own skills and capabilities.
