Overview of CASANZ Mentoring Program
What is mentoring?
CASANZ mentoring process is a relationship that provides professional and personal support to young professional(s). The mentor uses their experience in a facilitative manner to support the development of the mentee.
The benefits of mentoring
Mentoring will have a clear and positive effect on the personal and professional development of the mentee that includes:
- Career development.
- Improvement in communication skills.
- Improvement in leadership skills.
- New development opportunities.
The mentoring program is also intended to benefit mentors and CASANZ. Your involvement as a mentor supports young professional(s) by:
- Giving them an insight into your work and career.
- Assisting them with practical tips on planning a successful job search strategy.
- Offering advice and guidance with their career thinking as young professionals.
- Encouraging reflection, recognise and celebrate effective practice.
- Identifying areas for development and improve self-confidence.
The mentoring relationship
The mentoring relationship can be a very powerful positive experience. It enables and develops a greater sense of confidence, enhancing the professional and personal skills of both parties. The mentor is usually a more experienced person providing guidance, advice, and support to someone less experienced.
The information session will close with a group discussion on:
- The role of a mentor.
- Expectations and responsibilities.
- How to get involved to ensure greater involvement across Australia and New Zealand.
