What is mentoring?

A partnership between mentor and mentee to assist our coaches to acquire new knowledge, feedback, ideas or advice. Mentoring should be developmental, driven by the mentee and focused on the individual’s needs.

Mentors are not there to find fault or criticise, but to share knowledge and experiences to help other coaches develop their skills and become the coach they want to be.
