Coaching and mentoringTraining by KBA
Mentoring is fundamental to building capability and expertise in an organisation. It allows organisations to use its skilled staff to build the expertise of its existing and future teams. It expands the knowledge and skills base of the organisation, increasing capability and mitigating the risk of expertise laying with a small group of employees.
Our current mentoring projects focus on developing the skills of experts acting as mentors. Mentoring skills share a great deal in common with coaching skills at a competency level and using reflective learning in mentoring allows enhanced learning and high levels of engagement and satisfaction for those being mentored.
Coaching has rapidly become a learning intervention of choice for many organisations. At its core, the use of reflective learning as the key approach to support executives and leaders develop their skills and performance. The application of coaching is very broad and can be used in very different ways by different organisations. KBA has the experience and expertise to deliver coaching to achieve the breadth of outcomes organisations are looking to achieve.
