Industry Leader to Industry Professionals Mentoring
Mentoring is a relationship in which the more experienced individual supports the development of a less experienced individual by being an advisor and guide. Mentoring can be done in the following three ways:
- Mentoring: From Student
- Mentoring: From an Industry Professional
- Mentoring: From an Industry Leader
A senior in the industry mentors a person (mentee) who is relatively younger in experience (industry profession) on skills like leadership, team management, emotional intelligence, carving a career direction, influencing peers, communication skills and so on. These attributes may be the strength of the mentor and a development need for the mentee.
If a professional is facing challenges in professional growth, and has specific and identified developmental needs, then an experienced industry leader can add a lot of value to help the professional grow through experience sharing. This can be achieved in a trust based and sustainable relationship of a mentoring program.
At times, the wisdom and knowledge required for a professional to grow, exists outside their office. Mentoring makes it possible, so that a professional can learn from experienced industry leaders and progress on their professional path.
