Have you got the M Factor?

The search for Mentors in Hammersmith & Fulham begins 

  • Are you an individual who strives to achieve your best at what you do?
  • Do you find helping others to succeed, fulfilling?
  • Do you have expertise in your field and want to impart this to others?

 If you answered yes, you were born to be a mentor!

Striding Out in partnership with Hammersmith and Fulham Council are running a project to bring the ‘Generations Together’. The Social Pioneer programme is essentially about creating intergenerational practice of ‘older’ (over 50) and ‘younger’ (under 25) people working together to bring benefits to each other and the wider community, promoting understanding and respect between the generations  through business innovation.

The aim of the programme is to build successful sustainable social enterprises in the borough to benefit both the community and its surrounding residents.

We are primarily looking for business experienced individuals/residents (preferred, not absolutely necessary) in Hammersmith and Fulham who are over 50 to come along and be part of this exciting opportunity.

Benefits of being a mentor:

  • Personal fulfillment from investing in others
  • Communication, management and coaching skills
  • Enjoyment of a rewarding challenge
  • To feel “valued” as a role model
  • To stimulate your own learning – a two way learning relationship
  • Improve own processes and performance
  • Insights into relationship with other people
  • Having an opportunity to be challenged
  • Opportunity to take time out and reflect
  • Renewed focus on own career and development

If you are part of a larger organisation, mentoring is a powerful way to engage with the community in which you operate and effectively add to your Corporate Social Responsibility activities.

Mentoring is really an endorsement for you because it says that someone looks up to you and views you as someone they can learn from. If you look at the opportunity the right way, you can learn from being a mentor as well.

“We make a living by what we get, we make a life by what we give.”  Winston Churchill
