Mentorship Mastery

Mentorship Mastery

Enabling a colleague to transcend the limitations that inhibit superlative performance



Mentorship is a supportive relationship between a caring individual who is ready to share knowledge, experience and wisdom, with another who is willing to benefit from this exchange. It helps to unlock the courage to think and act beyond existing limitations and paradigms.

Mentorship is a structured engagement that facilitates accelerated maturity in the personal, professional as well as social dimensions of existence. Founded upon a spirit of openness, empathy and mutual respect, it entails a series of supportive conversations and interventions that facilitate personal growth as well as capability development.

Mentorship is a holistic developmental process that facilitates the informal transmission of knowledge, social capital, and the psychosocial support. At the heart of this partnership lies an interpersonal dialogue that allows for collaborative reflection, planning, and feedback toward the attainment of the mentee’s desires, goals and objectives.

The practice of mentoring is facilitated by an appreciative, strength-based approach towards human interaction. It runs through three core phases:

  • Esteem – Recognizing inherent potential, as well as the articulation of key talents and values
  • Envision – Challenging the status quo, by helping to envisage a preferred future for the individual
  • Evoke – Harnessing demonstrated capability as well as latent potential towards the realization of the vision.
