It offers a stimulating sanctuary, where you can get overview. It can increase your repertoire of ideas, models and practical tools you can use in the day to day.
If you are a leader within a business you will want your people to spend each day doing what they do best. Mentoring partnerships offer the chance to get this right, by helping people focus on their 'A' talent and building their best possible contribution around that.
As a leader your role is to grow tomorrow's business, leaving your people to run today's business for you. To enhance your chance of success with this, you will need to build self managing teams. Mentoring can help build this skill.
