Mentoring for Leadership Development

If you are a leader, developing new leaders is one of your responsibilities. And one of the best ways to do this is through mentoring: that is, supporting someone and sharing your knowledge and experience with them.

A mentor is a source of:
β€’ wisdom
β€’ experience
β€’ knowledge
β€’ advice
β€’ support

Definition of Mentoring
Professor David Clutterbuck:
‘Mentoring is a learning relationship between two people. It requires a range of human qualities such as trust, commitment and emotional engagement. It includes a range of skills including listening, questioning, challenge and support. Mentoring has a time scale. In some contexts it is a life long relationship, in others it may be a few months.’

Types of Mentoring
1. Developmental mentoring
2. Sponsorship mentoring
3. Executive mentoring
4. Reverse mentoring

How to be a Mentor
In 2004, David Clutterbuck coined an acronym for what mentors need to do:
β€’ Manage the relationship
β€’ Encourage
β€’ Nurture
β€’ Teach
β€’ Offer mutual respect
β€’ Respond to the learner’s needs

Either (or both):
1. Find an opportunity to offer mentoring to someone who can value the experience and skills you have, in helping them to develop in any aspect of their career. Start simple, and build your mentoring skills. Commit to at least four 1-hour sessions (6 MC CPD Points)
2. Find yourself a mentor. Look for someone who has experience and skills you can learn from, to develop in any aspect of your career. Ask them courteously to share their thoughts – and be prepared to buy them coffees. If the relationship works, aim for at least four 1-hour sessions (6 MC CPD Points)

There are a vast number of Leadership books – perhaps more than on any other management-related topic. And there is also a huge range represented in different lists of the best. This no-doubt reflects the different contexts for leadership.

So, any recommended reading list of leadership books must be particularly subjective. I have chosen those that made me think, and which are of particular value to managerial leaders: not sportspeople, military leaders, or CEOs. In no particular order:

πŸ“– Leaders Eat Last
πŸ“– Start with Why
πŸ“– Humble Leadership
πŸ“– The Leadership Challenge
πŸ“– The New Leaders
πŸ“– Shackleton’s Way
πŸ“– Why should Anyone be Led by You
πŸ“– The Habit of Excellence
