Using Mentoring In the Moment, leaders can deliver quick, on-the-job training in the context of day-to-day work situations, called “mentoring moments.” At the same time, they can assess these everyday interactions with their mentees in the larger context of a deep, ongoing relationship – a relationship that unfolds according to predictable phases.
Mentees progress through a sequence of four developmental phases:
I - Identification: idealizing the mentor and asking for guidance
II - Growth: sensing strengths and experimenting with behaviors
III - Separation: wanting an independent identity
IV - Mutuality: seeking and sharing experiences as an equal
Mentoring in the Moment was designed to help participants understand the process of mentoring and how to improve skills in responding effectively to training behaviors. Mentors use this workshop to help mentees with the ability to no longer rely on them so heavily and to help mentees take the initiative and to show self-confidence to seek complete independence.
