"We guarantee you’ll become a great mentor faster and easier, or we’ll refund your money"

Your mentoring success depends upon you doing
the right things effectively

 

Dear Friend,

My name is Louise Ledbrook and I’m really pleased you have arrived here at our site.

I have found that some of the essential ingredients to success is Mentoring, Leadership and working on the "Right Things", "The Right Way".

One of my driving principles in everything I do in my business is it must in some way improve the life, business or career of others, so that is what I want to do for you, but I'm not going to stop there. Every time you purchase a product from www.PracticalMentoring.com you are helping us Help the Community as a whole as well.

But I’ll tell you more about that later, first I want to tell you why Active Development: Mentoring Activities even exists and how it can help you.

Best of luck on your mentoring journey!

Let me ask you this....

 

Great mentors and leaders have been integral to my success

I have had not just good but great mentors and leaders that have been integral to the success of my career, I owe a lot to them.

“I honestly would not be where I am today without those mentors having been in my life.”

They have taken me leaps and bounds in my career over the years.

 

I have also had the fortunate opportunity, of having mentees myself, actually it has been a privilege to be their mentor because I learn so much from the experience myself, every time.

I really believe that without having good teachers and mentors in your life you will not progress as far as you would if you did not.

However, having a good teacher or mentor is one thing, whether what they do and how they work with you enables you to be successful is another.

"Better than a thousand days of diligent study is one day with a great teacher." – Japanese Proverb

 

Now, this didn’t occur to me until I became a mentor myself...

The Big Question
"Why were my mentors so successful in the way they worked with me?"

Personally I found that when I had awesome mentors that challenged me to take action was when I was most successful and excelled.

They encouraged me to actively learn and develop.

 

So why did this learning style work?

tick
They challenged me
tick
I actually applied the knowledge they had passed onto me
tick
They gave me exercises and activities where I had to actually go away and do something
tick
They tracked me, followed me up and reviewed to make sure that it worked
tick
It wasn’t just a general conversation, it was active learning

 

I wanted my mentees and employees to have the same great experience I had

So when I became a mentor I really wanted to do that for my mentees also. I wanted my employee or mentee to actually get something out of the relationship and I wanted them to think I was a really good mentor. 

I wanted them to go away thinking...


“You know, I got heaps out of that, having you as my mentor has been invaluable to my career and it drove me to success.”.


I wanted them to be in a position one day to say things like...


“I am now a successful Executive because of the things you taught me.  They led me on the right road, took me on the path to success.”


That’s what I wanted them to think. Do you want that too?


I wanted them to walk out of every session I had with them.....

tivk
 With something to do and something to think about
tivk
 With something to bite their teeth into
tivk
 Thoughts to be clicking over in their mind
tivk
 To be challenged and getting creative

It’s a learning experience after all. Mentorship is about learning and development and you need to make sure that that is what you give the person as your mentee, protégé or employee.

 

So how do I achieve this? And how can you?

I searched but could not find anything that gave me the answers I was looking for. So I used to spend a lot of time coming up with creative activities, I would search the Internet for inspiration. I’d get the text books out and leadership books off the bookshelf. I’d buy all sorts of different products. I’d find a bit here and pull a bit out of there.

hard work

And you know what, in the end, that is actually a lot of hard work, it actually took a lot of time.  I would spend many a Sunday night, hours in the study, when I would have much rather been cuddled up on the couch watching the Sunday movie.

Every time your mentee comes to you with a new topic they need to work on you have to come up with a new activity, you’ve got to come up with a new creative way to challenge them

It’s all well and good to sit in a meeting and discuss it with them but...

You learn through action!


And grow through doing!

So I needed to set them a challenge.

The activities they do also need to take them to their end goal!

 

You don’t just want to set them anything. They need to be the Right Things. You need to set them activities that are relevant, and proven for success.

If you want that too, not longer do you need to go through all the hard work I did, I've done it for you.


Here's an example of all this in action and one of my favourites

Top Pick
A few years ago while working for one of Australia’s largest financial services companies, I was working on a program of work that was as a result of the merger of two of Australia’s largest regional banks at the time and I had a Project Manager working on one of the pieces of work with me who was Excellent but new and she fortunately, or unfortunately, was introduced to the intricacies’ of personalities and projects while on this project.

Now having been there myself before and having a manager who handled it very poorly, I really wanted to help her find a way to make this team work.

So one of the activities in Active Development: Mentoring Activities is the one I worked on with her called “How do they take it in?” which helped her work through finding ways that different team members work and what they respond best to so that you can find the best way to work with each individual effectively.

Here’s what she has to say about it:

"I found this exercise really helpful during a stressful time. I was becoming quite frustrated and unfortunately, as much as you would like others to change it doesn’t work that way. I decided that I needed to work out how I could work better with them.

Louise took me through this exercise over a couple of sessions and it was really valuable to work through how I was going to approach situations differently in the future and also assess myself in each situation.

It made a huge difference. Although things are never perfect, it made my day to day work a lot easier and I will definately take those skills with me to my next projects."

Alicia Cini, Melbourne, Australia

 


So what's the solution for you?

It occurred to me that it would be AWESOME to have a little resource, this fabulous book that I could go to whenever I needed a challenge or an activity. Something I can set for my mentee to make sure that the learning sticks, they actively learn and that in the end they are successful in their career.

So I decided to put together this unique little package of activities and exercises that you can also use with your mentee. I have seen nothing like it anywhere else.

I've taken that hard work out of it, the hard work has been done for you!


We’ve collated this book based on proven topics and proven development areas which will result in success.

 

What makes a good mentor?

Take a look at the following extract from an online survey carried out by The Centre for Coaching and Mentoring, Inc. and reported by Matt M. Starcevich, Ph.D., on the Characteristics of the Most Effective Mentors.

Characteristics of the Most Effective Mentors
Matt M. Starcevich, Ph.D.


During the first quarter of 2003 an on-line survey was conducted by the Center for Coaching & Mentoring, Inc. The objective of the survey was to better understand what the purpose of the most effective mentoring relationship was and the behaviors of the respondents most effective mentor. Seventy individuals responded; twenty males and fifty females, with seventy-four percent being under forty-five years of age. When asked about the main purpose of their most effective mentoring relationship the group results were:


Skill Development 36%
Career Advancement 24%
Job Performance 20%
Life Skills 13%
Studies/school work 8%

So what are the "Right Things" you ask?

You can see from these survey results, skill development, career advancement and job performance top the list.


In Active Development: Mentoring Activities we have included activities on areas like....

Improving your Communication, or your Leadership

Communication Exercise

Personal Brand Example

What about Personal Brand?

What is your brand?

  • When you put on your outfit in the morning what is that saying to the people around you?

  • When you stand up and speak what is the way that you speak saying to the people in the room?

  • What sort of presence are you creating?

These things, matter in Career Advancement and Development

Career Growth Exercise

Time Mangaement Exercise

Time Management, this is imperative in any business, especially for those people that are very time poor and busy

How are you using your time? You don’t even think about it, do you?

So many people are so busy they don’t even think about how busy they are and how efficient they could be.

Do you challenge yourself to be more efficient?

Learning how to Work Well With Team Members

There’s some great exercises in here on being able to work well with your team members whether it’s in a project or a regular operational work team.

"When I started with a new mentee, I was really worried that I couldn’t provide the stimulation and depth of challenges to really keep them interested. I wanted them to feel they were actually getting somewhere from the relationship.  

After starting to use Active Development: Mentoring Activities, it really felt like a weight was lifted off my shoulders! Not only did this book help my mentoring relationship, i was also surprised to discover it also helped me. I was hitting a plateau professionally and needed some fresh perspective. The practical, down to earth approach hit home and now I am re-working my own goals as well as my mentee's.

Thoroughly recommend!"

Lauren Oswald, London, United Kingdom
