Mentoring is the targeted and systematic guidance of new or less experienced colleagues by an employee who already has more experience and know-how in the field. A mentor is a support to his less experienced colleague, trying to guide him towards the set goals and motivate him when needed.
This role is often transferred in practice, so that an employee who was previously mentored may eventually become a mentor to other colleagues. If a company has mentoring in place, it can benefit greatly in the long run as experience and knowledge is not lost ‘along the way’. 💡
