The ‘Moves Mentor’ award is in recognition of, and to specifically highlight, the role individual women leaders play in shaping and forming the next generation; the energy, experience and expertise used in mentoring today’s millennials into tomorrow’s executives. Long identified as the most efficient and effective process to nurture and support the individual in realising their potential, data shows that one-on-one mentoring is a symbiotic relationship, advantageous to all parties in that it develops the inter-personal skills of the mentor as well as benefiting the parent organisation in maintaining a skilled, savvy and loyal workforce. A successful mentor is empathetic and understanding but at the same time never loses sight of the value – in fact the necessity – for perspicacity in her every engagement with her mentee; trust is the most valuable currency in the relationship. She recognises she is an essential guide in the young woman’s self-awareness and invaluable in pointing out opportunities and giving direction.
