Know+Do have just completed another 2 days mentor training for cohorts 3 + 4. This exciting new programme has been developed for Health Education England and is aimed at supporting senior NHS professionals to mentor colleagues who are returning to work. After an initial day’s training on mentoring skills the cohorts then undergo Action Learning training and form an action learning set to continue to support each other.
Formal mentoring programmes are known to make a highly positive impact on organisations, those being mentored and the mentors themselves. Know+Do are passionate about mentoring and the difference it makes. Many people we train have experienced more informal mentoring which whilst useful has a tendency to fizzle out. Plus, individuals talked about not being sure what to share with a mentor and being confused as to whether a manager can and should be your mentor. This new programme helps to offer a clear defined programme of mentoring support across the North West.
The NHS is under increasing pressure and the men and women staffing the service do incredible work. We are very pleased to be helping them to support their colleagues through this programme. If you’d like to know more about how mentoring or coaching could help you or your organisation please contacts us firstname.lastname@example.org.
