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

                        learning. 

                                  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.
