The Mentor Certification Program by Matrrix provides a range of approaches an aspiring mentor can use in the professional life. In this program, participants partner with a Mentor Supervisor and imbibe all the skills, knowledge, information, and different thought processes that are required to grow professionally and personally. An aspiring Mentor is equipped to work on his/her capabilities to build upon the personal and professional growth of others. The aim of the program is to support learners to discover their own potential and wisdom to mentor others while ensuring mutually beneficial bonds are forged between the Mentor Supervisor and the Mentee. An excellent Mentor supervisor provides the learner with the most appropriate support while learning to listen with empathy. And, at Matrrix, we ensure all participants are completely focussed on self-development while setting goals with the help of the Mentor supervisor.

This program is highly recommended for all senior leadership roles.

With the Mentor Certification Program, our clients turn into world-class mentors, making successful decisions along the way while leading, motivating and influencing strong business actions.

METHODOLOGY

The Matrrix Mentor Certification Program is developed to maximize a client’s personal and professional potential. Our methodologies used a systemized approach. We seek to develop 12 core competencies that bring massive changes to one’s professional outlook. Clients who have undergone the Mentor Certification Program at Matrrix, have noted behavioral changes with a positive approach in their thinking, feeling, and actions.

The Mentor Certification Program uses a combination of simulation activities, coach-led discussions, and experiential learning along with Psychometric Assessments tests, roleplays with a touch of humor, case studies and much more. The process of learning starts with a pre-assessment program followed by a training program and is concluded with a post-assessment test. More details in the structure section.

STRUCTURE

The program is formed with the objective to inculcate a positive and winning attitude in professionals to create world-class mentors.

The Mentor Certification Program is a 9-month intervention program.

Course Outline:

Month 1:

This month is completely focussed on understanding mentoring and the concepts associated with it. Participants are given activities that require them to peruse books as specified by the Mentor Supervisor. Post the activity, everyone needs to read and share their perspectives and learnings and need to present the same on the Day 1 (Month 2) of this program. This creates a firm foundation for learners looking to pursue mentoring in their professional life. Every participant needs to undergo a psychometric assessment test based on positive psychology.

Month 2:

This is inclusive of a 3-day intervention.

Day 1: The 3-day program highlights the difference between counseling, mentoring, consulting, therapy, teaching, and coaching.

The session also includes important details on the barriers of coaching and the ethics all need to follow for mentor coaching. All participants are introduced to the qualities required to be an excellent mentor while learning about the culture and systemic issues in mentoring. Meta-model distinctions derived from NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming), OLURA (Observe, Learn, UnLearn, Reflect and Aware), learning to connect the brain and the mind are some of the highlights of this engaging program.

Day 2: Transactional Analysis is a system that is popular in psychology that helps one identify self-behavior while learning about social relationships. The program includes important tools and techniques of TA such as the PAC (Parent-Adult-Child) model, functional analysis, drama triangles, frames of references, discounted games, Egan’s skilled helper mentoring model, and more.

Day 3: Mindfulness in mentoring is a valuable practice to be in the present moment with complete awareness. This reduces the need for distraction from any external sources leading to better focus on self and teams. There is strong focus on developing core competencies useful for life, and mentoring.
