Mentoring is a collaborative relationship that occurs between an experienced employee (a senior) and an employee who is willing to learn and to develop his or her career.
This was my case too: I wanted to develop my people management skills, so I chose a few topics for which I needed help, to better understand some perspectives. As a result, it was a very successful tool; I received advice for real situations where I needed to identify new ways of thinking and reacting.
I got personalized recommendations for books, podcasts, articles, and courses that could help me further develop these people management skills. It was all in a very safe and confidential environment – 1 to 1 meetings with my mentor.
