A relationship between an experienced business professional (the mentor) and a firm owner or employee is defined as business mentoring. It can be employed at any point of the business life cycle, and both mentors and mentees profit from it.

You can opt to have a mentor for yourself or your employees as a business owner. You can build your business abilities for free through mentorship, which can help you reach success sooner than you might have otherwise.

Mentoring can take the shape of informal support and advice from friends, family, or business acquaintances. You can also participate in government-sponsored or industry-sponsored formal mentorship programs.

Types of Mentoring in business


1. One-On-One Mentoring


One-on-one mentoring, the most prevalent business mentoring model, pairs one business mentor with one mentee. The majority of individuals favor this strategy since it allows both mentor and mentee to create a personal relationship while also providing individualized support for the mentee. The only limitation is the availability of mentors. A program manager would usually match mentors and mentees based on the program's skill sets and desired objectives.

This is most likely the form of mentoring that comes to mind when you think about mentoring. It's the classic mentoring approach, in which a mentor and mentee agree to form a mentoring relationship in order to help the mentee grow, progress, and succeed.


2. Group Mentoring


A mentor must work with 4-6 mentees at once when doing group mentoring. Once or twice a month, the club gathers to discuss diverse issues. The mentor and peers work together to learn and build suitable skills and knowledge, combining senior and peer mentoring.

The difficulty of coordinating frequent sessions for the full group limits group mentoring. It also lacks the human connection that most people associate with mentorship. As a result, it's frequently paired with the one-on-one model. Some organizations, for example, assign a mentor to each mentee. Furthermore, the organization hosts regular meetings in which a senior executive meets with all mentors and mentees, who then exchange their experience and expertise.


3. Resource-based Mentoring


A resource-based mentoring relationship is also a one-on-one mentoring connection, but the mentee chooses it. Resource-based mentoring, also known as self-directed mentoring, is when a mentee is provided information about various mentors inside a company and then picks his or her mentor.


4. Training-based Mentoring


A training program is linked to this mentoring approach. A mentor is appointed to each mentee in order to assist them in developing the skills taught in the program. Because it concentrates on the issue at hand and does not help the mentee acquire a broader skillset, training-based mentoring is limited. The program is well-known, and various companies utilize it to train their employees.


5. Executive Mentoring


Executive mentoring is a type of monitoring wherein seasoned executives take on fresher, less experienced colleagues and help them gain a better understanding of the profession and business culture. Executive mentoring offers several fundamental benefits. Employees who have been mentored are more likely to stay with a company and have higher levels of overall job satisfaction.


6. Reverse Mentoring


Reverse mentoring is a management technique in which a senior employee seeks advice from a less experienced, sometimes younger employee. The traditional mentoring relationship, in which a more experienced person guides a less experienced person, is flipped in reverse mentoring.

Business mentoring programs offer distinctive benefits to organizations. The above-listed program can be selected based on the type of organization, culture, values, and goals of the program.
