Mentor and mentee

A look inside the mentor and mentee relationship

Last year our internal Women’s Affinity Group launched a pilot mentoring programme where 20 individuals across the business were paired up to support their professional and personal development. Chantelle Harris (mentor) and Sophie Pringle (mentee) are two of those people who have come together this International Women’s Day to reflect on their mentor and mentee relationship, including:

  • their expectations before vs the reality of mentoring
  • what kinds of support and topics they discussed throughout their conversations
  • how it’s helped the mentee get support in progressing in their career at GatenbySanderson
  • how it’s helped the mentor to develop their coaching skills beyond formal training

Reflecting on the mentor and mentee relationship itself has helped them both take stock of the impact it’s had for both of them and the importance of sharing knowledge, skills and experience in this way.
