MPS Cross Company Mentoring
Our mentoring process enables individuals to grow through a process of training, appropriate pairing, and use of tools that support development. Our mentoring programmes provide goal-orientated growth and professional development for both actors and mentors.
MPS Cross Company Mentoring program is intended for experts who are interested in developing themselves. MPS offers a unique mentoring model, which breaks organizational boundaries, by match-making mentors and actors from different organizations. The program lasts for 9 months and it builds bridges between generations, businesses and organizational cultures. Our mentoring program has undergone nearly 500 participants and it concretizes our slogan "Valuable Growth for Everybody".
The next MPS Cross Company Mentoring program (for Finnish-speaking) starts on October 2019 and the application period is running until October 4, 2019!
The aim of the program is to provide support for successful work both in corporate management and within one's area of responsibility. Even those in the lead who need sparring and support from more experienced experts can take part in the program as actors. Mentoring is based on the confidential interaction of two equal people, where know-how is transferred through regular and purposeful discussions. The Mentoring program is based on volunteering, but it requires a strong commitment to the process from both sides. We also run company-specific mentoring programs.
Creating fruitful discussions is the cornerstone of the whole program. Transparency and trust between mentor-actor pairs, as well as mutual respect, are conditions for development during the program. We create mentor-actor pairs based on the compatibility of both parties' experience, expectations and personality before the start of the program.
The starting point is always the development goals and expectations of the actor. In match-making, we take into account the expertise and experience of mentors in relation to the actors' development areas and goals. In addition, we pay attention to both parties' expectations of what each and every one of them specifically wants to achieve by participating in the program. Before the start of the program, we will interview all the participants and they will be invited to two web-based self-assessment surveys. With this we will map out each participant's style of interaction and motivation factors. The results will be used to create compatible pairs - we will also try to ensure matching personalities. We provide personal feedback on test results to help identify your strengths and development areas.
The program includes four joint training sessions. In addition, the mentor-actor pairs meet each other every 4-5 weeks for the duration of the program, a total of 8-10 times. Actors have the opportunity to participate in a 360 ° evaluation during the program.
Participation fee for the mentoring program
The 9 month mentoring program costs 3,100 € / actor.
The program is free of charge for mentors, however they will not be paid separately for their contributions.
