ITSB + The TechLX
Benefits for Mentors
- Gain applicable insights. Use of the reports from their mentee will help mentors demonstrate how developing certain competencies and skills such as communication or collaboration will help them realize their leadership goals.
- Bring relevance. The data will help mentees reflect on how they have refined some of these competencies as they moved up the ranks to the senior leadership position they are in now.
- Make it actionable. Mentors will be able to breathe life into some of the competencies that may not be so clear to the mentee.
- Apply it to their own teams. Mentors will benefit from seeing where their mentee (and the cohort) is in terms of strengths and gaps, which are also a reflection of the tech community overall. This information can help mentors make improvements in their own teams.
