Linda Betts & Associates have built a reputation for providing highly effective, evidence-based and practical mentoring programs that contribute to the performance of individuals and organisations.
Sample of feedback from mentoring induction session in 2016:
"Extremely helpful, interactive, relevant, highly valuable. I learnt a lot. Exceeded my expectations" (Mentee)
"Evidence-based approach was excellent (e.g. "Using this list is proven to improve outcomes was brilliant) Too often these sessions o over ground senior academics (with relevant experience) already know. Providing the evidence elevated this training into something much more useful." (Mentor)
"The facilitator was brilliant. She had great ideas and supported them with research evidence. I could listen to her all day. (Mentee)
"An excellent session - one of the est and most helpful professional development workshop that I have attended since starting at this university" (Mentee)
Mentoring programs provide a cost-effective professional development approach that supports:
- the retention of talented staff
- the development of industry-specific work skills and knowledge
- increased productivity of employees who feel supported
- improved relationships amongst employees at different levels of the organisation
We are particularly skilled at facilitating mentoring programs within large, complex organisations and meeting the particular challenges faced in providing effective, in-house professional development programs for staff.
