Welcome to the May edition of Mentoring News. 

You will see in the first article that I am asking for your feedback on what your biggest challenge is at the moment. I would love to hear from you - it will take you about 2 minutes to answer 3 questions. And check out the special offer if you complete the survey!

I am also letting you know about my new hard copy mentoring handbooks (in case you haven't seen my LinkedIn post or you are not yet a member of the FB Mentoring Community).

And finally, check out the upcoming workshops Lyn Alderman and I are facilitating in Brisbane on 11 and 12 July - all about developing emerging leaders' capability and co-designing with your stakeholders. It would be great to have you join us.

What is your biggest challenge?

I’ve been doing a whole lot of research and reading lately to find out the key challenges people are currently facing in the workplace. I have explored a range of industries and professions including HR, managers, small business owners, team leaders, healthcare workers, and project managers/teams. And although they all have challenges that are unique to their industry or role, there are definitely some common concerns they all share. This is what I found:
  • Maintaining and increasing staff morale and productivity during periods of change
  • How to create an employee experience that retains staff
  • Effective communication with and between employees
  • Resolving team conflict
  • Uncertainty about the future
  • Recruiting the right talent
  • Exploding data and massive technology expansion
  • Managing constant change
  • Poor organisational culture
  • Lack of mentoring
  • Lack of training
What’s your biggest challenge or concern right now? It may be workplace-related or a more personal challenge you are facing. I’d love to hear your answer so please take two minutes to send it to me by clicking on this link.

The more I know about your challenges and concerns, the more targeted I can make my mentoring and coaching services and products to assist you in managing and overcoming them.

*To say thanks for sending me your feedback, you will receive 15% off your purchase of either my hard copy Mentor or Mentee Scenarios Handbook. Once I receive your survey answers I will contact you to organise the discount and send you your copy.

And please send the survey link to your networks so they can benefit from this offer as well - that would be great!

My Mentoring Handbooks now available in hard copy

In case you haven't yet heard my news (I've let people know about this on LinkedIn and in my FB Mentoring Community), I have finally produced my Mentor and Mentee Scenarios Handbooks in hard copy. They have been available as an eBook for a while now, but there's something about having a hard copy book that you can write in at will - which is the purpose of these handbooks!

A great resource for mentor and mentee reflection, to add another dimension to your mentoring training, and to prompt meaningful discussion in community of practice meetings. Check them out in my WebShop.

Ask me about discounts on bundle purchasing options.
