SkillsMatch Mentor Registration

Mentoring has benefits. It helps you:

  • Enhance your leadership, interpersonal skills and intercultural communication skills
  • Broaden your networks
  • Expand your global perspective - immigrants new to Nova Scotia have expertise on opportunities outside of Canada
  • Make a difference in the professional development of another businessperson. In fact, 70% of small businesses with owners who received mentoring stay in business for five years or more.

Effective mentors help their mentees. You will:

  • Act as a resource and share information, expertise, and experience
  • Recognize and encourage your mentee's business potential
  • Give and receive constructive and honest feedback with your mentee
  • Commit to assisting your mentee in their decision-making processes
  • Be an active listener, and share and review options of interest to your mentee
  • Be prepared to facilitate networking opportunities for your mentee
