Clutterbuck and Grow on Mentoring
Mentoring is a well used learning and development tool for small businesses as it maximises the resources the business already has. There are many ways small business might use a mentoring programme to benefit its business: apprenticeships, graduate training, succession planning, leadership development.
David Clutterbuck has identified the four players in a mentees development.
Feel free to request the templates firstname.lastname@example.org. I am happy to share.
1. Understand the key players in your business mentoring programme
2. Assess the mentee’s current learning state and the mentor’s skills
3. Allocate an appropriate mentor to enable the mentee to flourish
Please do share your experiences with this model in the comments below. I am building a portfolio of small business case studies and would love to include examples of what has worked well for you.
