Mentor or be mentored.
Ever wish you had someone with deep experience next to you with your project, just to be able to ask a question or get some thinking? Or have you decided to extend your know, but not sure where to start?
Check out our mentoring options.
What is it?
Our mentoring scheme assists the development and networking of community members. It’s ideal if you are currently working within an Org Design related role and seeking to develop.
As a member, you are entitled to one complimentary introduction, for a 6-month mentoring period, per membership year.
How does it work?
Our mentor pool consists of EODF/ODF members with deep experience, who have the passion to share their knowledge on a voluntary basis.
You can apply in the members area with a short application outlining your needs, we send you a selection of Mentor profiles, you choose the profile you like the most, and we pair you up. You then agree a short programme of support that suits you and your Mentor.
Why is it valuable?
Helps you refresh and learn new knowledge and skills from others within the field and to build your network.
We call it a “safe place to trade each other’s secrets”.
What our members say
“Stuart focused on helping me unpick a complicated web of theory, models and opposing points of view. He helped me enter the context in a relevant way and organise things in a way that first explains the outcome of what felt like a HUGE jigsaw, then deconstruct it and build it back up again, piece by piece. He taught me to remain ever curious. Sadly, Stu is no longer with us, but his legacy lives on in everything I do and in the wider EODF community”
“For me mentoring is much more than transferring my knowledge, it actually helps ME in many ways. Through the conversations I can connect to new people (which I love!), and get exposure to other companies and fresh perspectives – sometimes even amazing how people new to the field can bring freshness and new thinking. This helps challenge me why I work and think in a certain way. I love this chance to connect and two way learning!
“Seriously, Mark was amazing at challenging my thinking and also introduced me to some new approaches, different consultancy styles, and insight into a larger portfolio of large group interventions to support me further as a ‘Process Consultant’. Marks curious style of inquiry was really useful as it helped me to self-reflect, my practice and my thinking…
offering alternatives and learning from his extensive experiences…”
