SpCCJ Young Professional Mentoring Program – A Guide to the Mentoring Process

19 January, 2022 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm JST

This master class will be held as part of the mentoring program for young people that the Spanish Chamber of Commerce in Japan (SpCCJ) is planning. The session of 60 minutes targeting both mentors and mentees, will explain the importance of mentorship and in concrete will focus on:

  1. An exposition of concepts and basic aspects of “mentoring” (what it is about, its taxonomy, objectives, the differences between “mentoring” and “coaching”, etc.)
  2. The importance of mentorship and how to leverage the opportunity
  3. A detailed description of the “mentoring” process (its phases, “inputs”, “outputs” and skill for each of them, etc.) and of the main tools to carry it out
  4. A set of recommendations (best practices) for the progress of the mentoring relation, from the mentor`s as well as from the mentee’s perspective

The SpCCJ plans to run a six-month mentoring program among its members and is currently accepting applications for both mentees and mentors from individual and corporate members. Interested people are highly encouraged to participate in this master class. You can participate as a mentee if you are a young employee of an individual or corporate member of our association. Mentors can be individual members or corporate members who wish to volunteer.

You can participate in the master class and then decide to apply for the program, or you can just attend the master class.
