Motivation in Mentoring
The mentee’s motivation is a key factor in successfully changing and improving performance. But how do you assess their motivation, and how much can you help them become motivated? In this CPD workshop we will share some motivational theories, positive psychology approaches as well as recent insights from the field of neuroscience. We will then explore how these insights can help us understand and support our mentees in the coaching conversations

Access the Mentoring Register

The NHS Mentors on the register work within the East of England and have developed their skills of listening and open questioning, developing rapport, providing guidance and support, have a constructive non-judgemental inclusive approach and are able to challenge appropriately, value others experience and are able to offer expertise and advice in the interests of supporting their mentee's.

There is a profile for each mentor, so that you can consider who you wish to contact. If you wish to apply for mentoring, please register and if successful you will receive a password to log in within 1 to 2 days and you can view the full profiles of the mentors and apply for mentoring directly to a registered mentor. 

Access the Mentoring Register

Once contact is made with a mentor, you will then have an initial conversation to discuss your position and reason for seeking mentoring. If you then proceed to establish a mentoring arrangement, you agree the time and venue for sessions and contract with your mentor. A mentor can offer three to four sessions, each usually lasting between one to two hours. Mentoring sessions should be approximately 6 to 12 weeks apart, this should be agreed as part of the contract negotiation. Initial mentor support will always be provided through a face to face meeting, though subsequent support may be offered either face to face, telephone, correspondence or via email conversations.
