One of the greatest values of mentors is the ability to see ahead what others cannot see and to help them navigate a course to their destination.
John C. Maxwell, Author, and speaker on leadership
A mentor is someone who sees more talent and ability within you, than you see in yourself, and helps bring it out of you.
Motivational speaker, coach, author
The Mentoring Relationship
The mentoring relationship is not a modern fad. Historically, individuals learned through older members who passed their knowledge and insight whilst in the
workplace. Patiently, the mentor provided the time and energy to serve as the teacher and overseer of the mentee.
Modern mentorship programs transfer business knowledge and skills. Employees engage with each other and a pipeline of future leaders who understand the skills
and attitudes required to succeed within the company are developed.
Organisational mentoring culture is a valuable human resource tool for workforce planning and development, for spreading knowledge and best practices throughout

MENTORING & DEVELOPMENT
The goal of mentoring is to assist you the mentee to improve yourself through skill and professional development to advance your career. Therefore to be effective mentoring needs to focus on your needs.
Your Life Purpose and Your Career
The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honourable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well. Ralph Waldo Emerson
How do we know our life purpose? How do we find a fulfilling career that aligns with that purpose? These are life’s large questions.
As experienced workers leave their jobs they take with them their valuable knowledge and skills. Skills that they have built up over a lifetime of employment and unfortunately a gap will occur in the workforce. To your detriment, this will have a profound bearing on your workforce. Because with fewer working people with the necessary skills, then the continuity of your organisational wisdom and competence is threatened.
Feedback is a gift to let your staff know what they are doing well, and where they can improve. Above all, when a person deserves constructive feedback and you remain silent, a mistake will be repeated.

Training and mentoring are used as a professional and personal development tool. The main difference between training and mentoring is the nature of the relationship between the parties, and the approach of each. Training is used to impart knowledge and skills via a set program. However, mentoring is both supportive and developmental. The mentee brings their thoughts, challenges and questions to obtain guidance from the mentor and subsequently for them to reach their goals.

Jack L. Harris
With Leah’s enthusiastic approach I was motivated to examine much more than the basic requirements of the course. Her depth of knowledge in this arena not only surprised me but empowered me to pursue all aspects of it to ensure I had a really good understanding of what it entailed. Leah had presented the course in a professional yet warm and personal way and which allowed her students to become closely acquainted with the subject. Her passion for helping others is highly evident and via this avenue she is able to encourage others to be the change they want to see in themselves and in the world around them.
Student, Foundations in Career Development Practice
I have been able to demonstrate many of the elements of the course immediately, and see the results in provoking the right conversations, as well as providing areas of focus that aid in alleviating tensions, and pointing toward solutions. Leah has pitched the course to comprehensively cover pertinent topics with her own flair, in a manner befitting high quality professional development. I would recommend it wherever applicable.
Hospitality and Retail
‘The courses are good. I enjoy studying online in my home. It is easier and preferable to going to university. Staff are supportive, assisting me to succeed.’
‘Leah is a wealth of information and useful in terms of teaching content. It has been vital to how we learn and apply the skills.’
“I’m blown away! This is fabulous! The Foundations unit I looked at has so many great educational principles built in and all using that digital world so well.”
An organisation can offer the online course to their staff, or as a face-to-face program that is tailored to your organisation’s needs and requirements.
