The Mentoring Program The High Performance Officiating Program (HPOP) relies upon a formal mentoring relationship agreement that is mutually beneficial for each HPOP official and mentor. The HPOP official will be required to work with a mentor for the duration of 2019. The mentor will be responsible, in consultation with the selected official, specialist service providers and PSB, for assisting and providing regular feedback to the HPOP official throughout the agreement period. This will include: Identifying and recommending, to the HPOP official and PSB, professional development opportunities for the official; Informing the NTIS and PSB of the HPOP officials progress; Attending Induction and Final Workshops; Involvement in the mentor training sessions delivered face to face and online; Attending professional development opportunities, as required, with the HPOP official. Benefits to the Mentor A mentors life, on a personal and professional level, can be enriched through the following experiences (www.mindtools.com): Building leadership skills Mentoring helps develop the ability to motivate and encourage others. This can help the mentor become a better manager, employee, and team member. Improved communication skills Because the mentee can come from a different background or environment, the mentor and mentee may not speak the same language. This encourages finding a way to communicate more effectively in order to successfully navigate through the mentoring relationship. Learn new perspectives By working with someone less experienced and from a different background, the mentor can gain a fresh perspective on things and learn a new way of thinking which can help in both work and personal lives. Career advancement Refining leadership skills can strengthen on-the-job performance, helping enhance promotion prospects. Demonstrating an ability to help others learn and grow is becoming more and more essential to advancement in todays business world. Personal satisfaction It can be very personally fulfilling to know one has directly contributed to someone elses growth and development. Seeing a mentee succeed as result of ones input is often a reward in itself. The Durham University 2009 mentor survey found that mentors stated that the greatest benefit they derived from the process was providing them with an opportunity to reflect on their own practice and develop a network of enabling relationships.
