You may have your own informal mentor or have been connected through a formal work program. It’s going well but it could be better in terms of the questions to ask, the outcomes you are looking for and the areas you want to focus on.
A key issue raised in many mentoring discussions is “how can I be more influential?” With staff, your boss, other areas of the business or industry at large. McCarthy Mentoring’s one2one program helps you and your mentor work through this issue. The online portal provides questions you can ask your mentor, great business articles on influencing, a brief training video on improving power and influence as well as real life case studies to learn from.
There is also an interactive exercise to help you consider your influencing approach – whether you are effective and what you could do to get even better outcomes. The answers can then be shared with your mentor, offering them insights into your style and highlighting specific areas for development.
Negotiating and Influencing is just one of 10 key leadership topics covered in one2one that will enhance conversations, support your sessions and improve outcomes.
