IELTS Mentor Provide Reflection and Development
I remember the first time I had my own IELTS Mentor. Of course, I’ve had a variety of IELTS Mentors throughout my career – including those managers and mentors that have IELTS Mentored me through the various roles and responsibilities I’ve held. But I’m not talking about those IELTS Mentors. I’m talking about the first time I had my own “third-party” IELTS Mentor from outside my company. Here are 7 factors to consider when choosing an IELOTS mentor for IELTS preparation in India.
First, let me say how refreshing this experience has been. In the past, having an IELTS Mentor almost had a negative stigma but at the time I received this opportunity, the tide was turning as organizations and individuals realized the power of IELTS Mentoring as a proactive development approach.
Choosing an IELTS Mentor
Looking back on the first experience, I didn’t have a lot of knowledge, really, of what the IELTS Mentoring process was or how I should best leverage my IELTS Mentor. My IELTS Mentor was there to help me develop and apply the skills I learned while originally being certified to facilitate The IELTS coaching in Noida or other part of India. That was many, many years ago (just this week, I am going to be re-certified for Version 6 of The IELTS Mentoring Centre!)
Knowing what I know now, I’ve learned how my organization – and I – could have better leveraged the IELTS Mentoring engagement even before I had an IELTS Mentor.
Here are three primary factors to consider when selecting IELTS mentors for your organization or for yourself:
Understand What IELTS Mentoring is and What It is not?
My definition? IELTS Mentoring is a structured process of moving a willing individual forward to achieve their goals, helping them realize their potential that oftentimes they never knew they had.
IELTS Mentoring is not mentoring, managing, counseling or therapy, and it is not telling–it’s a tool to develop leaders. If you want someone to help you find the answers and actions to your challenges and goals that you most likely already have within you, an external IELTS Mentor is often the best blend of skill and experience to do that. An IELTS Mentor will ask questions that will enable you to think with a different perspective. An IELTS Mentor, grounded in a relationship of trust, will gift you with insight to move more confidently forward toward your goals and dreams.
Make Sure the IELTS Mentor is the Right Fit
Whether you are exploring the option for a IELTS Mentor for yourself, or for individuals within your organization, determine how that IELTS Mentor will fit with the “IELTS Needs.” Looking at an IELTS Mentor’s profile and background online is a start. At IELTS coaching, we recommend a “meet and greet” with a potential IELTS Mentor before making a decision.
In the IELTS coaching approach, we’ll typically set up a meeting between the IELTS mentors, the IELTS mentors manager/stakeholder, and at least two potential IELTS mentors. Prior to this short meeting, the IELTS mentors prepare questions to ask. After both the IELTS Mentor and IELTS mentors share their respective background and experience, the meet and greet discussion document provided by IELTS coaching includes questions about the IELTS Mentor’s work history, experiences, and approach to IELTS Mentoring.
Sometimes an IELTS Mentoring relationship doesn’t click…and that’s okay! This relationship is so critical and is often the determining factor in success for an IELTS mentors. Making a change, preferably before an IELTS Mentoring engagement starts, is a good practice if it feels like it may not work from the onset.
Consider Experience…Or Don’t
I facilitate The IELTS Mentoring Centre a lot. And one of the most valuable discoveries of the participants is this question of experience.
Imagine this: You’re participating in The IELTS Mentoring Centre and learning the process, structure, and approach to IELTS Mentoring. You then get to practice this approach through about seven or eight IELTS Mentoring sessions with your fellow participants within the centre. You’re IELTS Mentoring to real scenarios and challenges your fellow participants have. However, if you don’t work in this field and have little exposure to this particular challenge, you may find it difficult to become an IELTS mentor – even in a practice session – because you don’t know how to lead this nobody. I’ve heard participants saying they’re not sure they can IELTS Mentor this person because they nothing about the IELTS Mentor’s situation nor do they have the technical skills needed to provide advice.
And that is exactly one of the most powerful tools of being an IELTS Mentor. Not having that experience or knowledge requires the IELTS teacher to not give advice, but rather to ask questions – and deeper questions – to help this IELTS needs to find the answers for it, or the resources to get there.
Think about it: If you provide the answer, who owns that solution? Not having the experience and knowledge is often an advantage in an IELTS Mentoring conversation. Experience and knowledge-sharing typically define a mentoring relationship, which has its place as well. But it’s not IELTS Mentoring.
When Assessing An IELTS Mentors, You Can And Should Also Consider The Following:
Style of the IELTS Mentor. It doesn’t need to match the IELTS mentor’s style – it’s often a benefit if it does not!
Peer vs. power relationship. Your IELTS teacher should be partnering with the IELTS Mentor as a peer would. The IELTS Mentor does not have “power” over the IELTS mentorship, in any way, shape, or form.
Challenge vs. personality. Sure, it’s okay to like your IELTS teacher. But a likeable IELTS teacher must also be one who challenges you. So, stretches you to go in a different direction, and calls out your hesitation or inaction as appropriate.
Trust and openness. Nothing works unless you completely trust your IELTS teacher to be open with him or her. Having this honest relationship allows the IELTS mentors to express possibilities that they may have been apprehensive about sharing in the past. And THAT’S when the magic starts to happen.
