Support - HR and L&D Coaching (and mentoring)

From time to time or on a regular basis, a confidente, an ear to listen or bounce ideas off or just to vent some steam. We could do with it, but only the smart invest in such activities, because they know and realise the personal and organisational benefits to having such a service. Why not try today?

We offer 5 DIVERSE COACHING FORMATS led by 5 very different coaches:

ACTION - the style is goal focused (task orientated) to explore options, overcome barriers and make things happen, it's tough love sometimes

PERSONAL - the style is emotionally supportive, confidence led and thinking orientated, it's the mental side of performance

INNOVATION - the style is creative, exploring new avenues, trying new things, inspiring new ideas

STRATEGIC - the style is detailed, planning and research led

EMAIL- the style is quick and fast, ideal for those who want some quick inspiration

Would you like to give back to the HR community and join our Global Mentoring Scheme?

We are looking for experienced and professional HR and L&D practitioners from all types of backgrounds to support those who need career advice and HR/L&D insight in areas that interest you. Minimum of commitment (just check in once a month with your agreed match).

What's the Scheme purpose?
Simply to give something back. The gift of giving and helping someone develop their self confidence, career and deliver a great performance in HR or L&D is something we can all give, it's truly worthwhile.

What are the Aims of Scheme?
Give less experienced HR or L&D Practitioners advice or support on

  • Career options choices
  • HR and L&D insight into areas they haven't had success in yet
  • How to move forward when they feel 'stuck'
  • A sounding board for ideas
  • A listening ear, when self confidence is challenged

What's the deal?
For the mentor, we ask only for a minimum of commitment to 'check in' with your mentee every 3 months to make sure they are ok. Contact agreements are made between you and your mentee which we aim to match by area of interest or industry.

For the mentee, we simply ask you respect the workload of your mentor.

We would send you a simple form to complete, just a few lines to say who you are, what you areas of interest are and your industry/location and include you in a private, secure page only approved mentors and mentees have access too. You can withdraw your participation at any time, free of any commitment or responsibility.

What we don't do
We don't publicise your contact details openly, only with a potential match, on your say so.

What Benefits do I get from being involved in the Scheme?

  • As a mentor you get the opportunity to give back something knowing that you are developing excellence in others.
  • As a mentee, you get the opportunity to talk to someone who has been there and done it, sharing their experiences and accelerating your development and confidence.

More guidance can be found here on the roles of mentor and mentee in a typical process:
