Grow Mentoring Program

Project “GROW” Mentoring Program

AUTUMN 2022 WAVE is Now Launched

Many companies have programs for mentoring in the workplace. The effectiveness of them varies widely. Given this disparity, it can be hard to determine how to design and implement a mentoring program. However, at PMI Belgium, we believe that in the current work environment, it’s becoming ever more crucial to offer this valuable service to our members. Mentoring is a complementary way to learn through others, besides learning through structured courses and programs.

"Mentoring is to support and encourage people to manage their own learning in order that they may maximise their potential, develop their skills, improve their performance and become the person they want to be." Eric Parsloe, the Oxford School of Coaching & Mentoring

The mentoring programme will assist both mentors and mentees in attaining key life skills through sharing experiences with each other.
What are Mentors and Mentees?

A Mentor is defined as a person who is committed and able to share knowledge and experience in a manner that may lead to enhanced performance by positively affecting the professional and/or personal growth of a mentee. (See our Mentor Current Team : Here)

A Mentee is defined as a committed person who seeks direction from a Mentor or benefits from his/her experience and lessons learned. Protégés must be active.

Mentors are expected to:

  • Offer challenging ideas
  • Act as a sounding board
  • Coach and teach by example
  • Share networking strategies
  • Help build self-confidence
  • Offer encouragement and wise counsel

Mentors are expected to:

  • Be open to new ideas and approaches
  • Assess your abilities objectively
  • Take action to modify behaviors and develop skills
  • Set and work towards goals
  • Take initiative in managing the relationship
  • Take responsibility for your own development

Mentors AND Mentees are expected to:

  • Maintain confidentiality
  • Recognize and value individual differences
  • Listen and ask questions
  • Provide honest, constructive feedback and be receptive to receiving feedback

Similar mentoring programs exist already in several other PMI Chapters such as Australia, UK or US.


  • Advance in their careers
