About the Webinar
Did you know that it’s not only the mentee who gets benefits from mentoring? People who offer their time to mentor others also experience numerous benefits both personally and professionally, with the ultimate benefit being the positive impact you get from helping others succeed.
Darren McFarlane, director of Next Level Mentoring, will be running a webinar session both for those who are taking part in the Australian Maritime Mentoring Program as a mentor, and for mariners or pilots who are looking to gain new mentoring skills for use in their workplace.
For the mentoring program to be a success we will require interested and enthusiastic mentors. Therefore, the aim of the webinar is to give you enough information on the key skills you will need as a mentor to give you confidence and energy to go and do it.
Mentoring someone may even be the best thing you do all year!
The agenda is
- Introduction to Next Level Mentoring
- What is mentoring
- Benefits of mentoring.
- Key skills for a mentor
- Next steps
Darren will also share stories of his own key learnings from mentoring during the webinar and there will be plenty of time at the end of the session for question and answers.
Darren started his career as a technical safety engineer in the Oil and Gas industry and then grew into various leadership positions. This includes being the Australian country manager for a 14,000 employee Norwegian Oil and Gas services company and Global Operations Manager for a data tech start-up.
Darren is fortunate to have been involved in companies that put a high value on leadership development programs which included successful in-house mentoring and coaching programs. He had the opportunity in these companies to firstly be a mentee to some inspirational leaders and then to give back to the next wave of future leaders through formal mentoring and running leadership training.
In 2020, Darren decided to put more time into truly following his passion of helping others reach their career goals with the same opportunities that he had, with focus on helping more people get into mentoring. The outcome of this was the establishment of Next Level Mentoring. www.nextlevelmentoring.com.au
