Progress through experience
Without people learning from people, real progress is impossible. Revitalise your company and harness the power of your employees.
Our Mentoring Manifesto
That's why at Mentorjam we believe that sharing experience is progress.
May we pose a quick question? What do you think is ab-so-lu-te-ly critical
for any organization? Leadership? The production process? The sales department? The products or services themselves?
They all do indeed cover part of the equation. But
the only correct answer is: experience. You need
experience to know how to operate a piece of
machinery or software; how to sell a product; how
to lead an organization; how to connect with certain
people; how to overcome differences; the list goes
on and on. We define experience as: experience put
to work in day to day reality. Without any experience,
you wouldn't be able to improve yourself or others,
nor to move your company forward.
This raises another important question: If experience
is of paramount importance, how can experience be
successfully retained and cultivated within an organi-
zation? Should we start writing everything down? Make it searchable in a
database? Cement it in protocols? Though all these examples indeed
represent ways of processing experience, the most important requirement
for sharing experience is heartfelt human connection
At Mentorjam we know that 'mentoring' is the ultimate way to share
experience within organizations, and here's why: everyone who holds
some experience loves to share it. This 'love' part shouldn't be taken
lightly, because it's the essential preconditioned for
causing the magical spark between mentor and
mentee, leading to an inspiring connection. This
way, a trusted relationship between mentor and
mentee is established, in which the mentor can
provide the right amount of guidance that will
boost the mentee's confidence: they can do it. This
completely falls in line with 'experiential learning',
something that all educational psychologists agree
on to work best for experience sharing and
You'd might agree with all this up to this point but
still oppose that it's not easy to organize mentoring
in a structural, measurable and scalable way. That's why we've developed
a software platform to propel the full mentoring process forward, from
matching mentors and mentees, to keeping track of progress and creating
reports. Our software doesn't control people, it helps people to
compassionately connect with each other and help each other out.
"Mentoring completely falls in line with 'experiential learning', something that all educational psychologists agree on to work best for experience sharing and learning"
We do this because we believe that sharing experiences in a heartfelt way
is crucial for all organizations. Without proper experience sharing,
progress is impossible to achieve. Not for people nor for companies.
Let's look at evolution theory for proof: Gaining control of fire became a
survival-improving piece of experience for mankind. Now it's not the
experience on how to create a fire itself but sharing the experience with
others, that did the trick for us. Connection between human is essential
to survive and attain progress.

We're creating sparks to light the fire.
The most important requirement for successful mentoring
trajectory is the magical spark: is there a true heartfelt connection
between the mentor and mentee?
Our software aims to improve the probability of a mentor and a mentee generating a spark.
We also aim for a spark between ourselves and our clients - it makes work worthwhile, doesn't it?
We take responsibility.
A mentoring program often starts with good intentions, but easily degenerates to an ineffective, vague, non-measurable, process.
That's why we've developed mentoring software that not only
keeps track of the full mentoring program, but also help mentors
and mentees to make the best out of it.
Our additional mentoring services like our mentor training program ensures that mentors and mentees are primed for what they're getting into.
Plus: a mentoring trajectory is taking responsibility in itself. It can
help to bridge the generation gap in an organization, for example;
or to establish diversity and inclusion in your organisation.
