Mentoring is one of the broadest methods of encouraging human growth. Mentoring is a powerful element in personal development, and can be a key factor in building a learning organization where each member is empowered.

• Traditionally, mentoring was a formal process where by an older more experienced person helped and guided a younger person in learning the ropes within an organization. Mentoring is a process where by mentor and mentee work together to discover and develop mentee’s latent abilities and to encourage the mentee to acquire knowledge and skills as opportunities and needs arise. Their style may range from that of a persistent encourager who helps someone build confidence to that of a stern taskmaster who teaches a student to appreciate excellence in performance.

• Each Headmistress, coordinator and Head of department operating in traditional school setups has to take on the role of a Mentor.The conservative roles have to be expanded and redefined to cater to wide spectrum of roles and tasks these leaders have to undertake. A teacher who takes on the role of a mentor can provide encouragement, make the other teacher’s skills visible, and improve his or her credibility and status. It becomes a process of continuous growth and empowering climate where all members move towards common goal and vision.
Today with more technology, more aids and more focus on individualized attention to personality development of each child, schools are facing a gamut of challenges. With these new demands schools are in the process of evolution, trying to keep the old values and traditions intact and at the same time trying to integrate the modern. Any school today is in the process of continuous growth and revamping and so it has to prepare to face changes. Lot of systems are evolving and in years to come still new work methods will be put to experiment and more interventions for achieving excellence will be initiated. In such a phase its important to have a system for employee development, that can provide learning opportunities to employees on one hand and on the other hand keep the employees aligned with the vision and mission of the organization. Mentors will provide a networking to support employee development, build communication network and will be instrumental in providing valuable feedbacks at each level of operation in the school for strategic academic and co-curricular planning. Mentoring also becomes a tool for providing intrinsic motivation and sets in a culture for encouragement and appreciation.
