The FLF+ Mentoring Strategy
Mentoring can offer you valuable learning opportunities at all stages of your career. A targeted Mentoring conversation can help you clarify your thoughts, whether salient issues for you are resolving snags during your transition to a new role or responsibility, seeking your next career move, picking up a new skillset, or finding support for navigating processes or relationships at work.
Based on the insights into the FLF experience and development priorities we collected in 2021, we have designed a bespoke mentoring offer that offers maximum choice and flexibility.
In October 2021 we launch our flagship Leadership Mentoring Programme, hand matching FLFs with a sector leader for 6 months of focused development time.
In November 2021 we will launch strand two, offering quick- response opportunities for task and finish problem solving, centred on a two meeting model.
In addition, mentoring conversations are not limited to a mentoring programme and can take place with a range of supporting players, and in a range of different ways.
And so in the new year 2022, we will add even more opportunities for you to talk about the things that matter to you, launching both our peer mentoring community and a self-service online package that supports you to find and recruit a mentor as and when you want to.
