Our Program

Our program is a blend of coaching and mentoring that is focused on skills by default. The Skills Coaching Program is located between the transfer of information where the mentor is a resource and advisor, and a full mentor including acting as life coach, consultant and or sponsor.

Between the mentor and the IIBA Toronto Skills Coaching Program, the coachee will receive training about tasks and techniques that may be organization specific, plus the coach will provide first-hand references and be themselves a role model.

The Program spans entry-level needs to senior evolving practices and aiding those in looking what are the options outside the current organizational environment.

The Program includes meetups and peer-to-peer connection during the Program. You can collaborate with others in the Program and benefit from others as they grow their competencies. The Program is not a crash course in everything business analysis. 

Growing the Relationship

Our introductory session takes you through the steps of starting and growing your coaching relationship.

A coach will help you do what you need to do,

A mentor will help you do what you want to do.

IIBA Toronto Skills Mentoring Program Takes From Both

Our program is skills based. We encourage you to outline what you propose to achieve in the twelve weeks, and then we will help you execute your program and reach your targets.

Supporting Individual Development

The intent of mentoring is to support individual development through both career and personal functions.

Definition of a Mentor

A mentor facilitates personal and professional growth in an individual by sharing the knowledge and insights that they learned through the years. A mentor's purpose is to be a role model, a coach, a broker, and an advocate.

Definition of a Mentee

A mentee also known as a protégé, refers to the less experienced person who is receiving and benefiting from the acquired wisdom and years of practice of the more experienced individual.

Reasons Why Coaching and Mentoring Work

Effective mentoring relationships are reciprocal: Both parties gain access to information, ideas, and new ways of doing things.

Experience is the best teacher

Mentoring survives because having another person explain something to you and answer your questions is a preferred way of learning values, skills, and information over seeing it on video or reading about it.

Synergy: Result is greater than the sum of individual capabilities

Synergy is the ability of two or more people to achieve an outcome that each is incapable of doing alone. The energy and confidence that comes from a mentoring partnership are powerful forces.

Perpetuation of positive influences

How many secrets that would benefit humankind have been lost with the passing of the discoverers? Mentoring allows the tips and tricks of an accomplished master to be passed on to the upcoming generation without the information becoming part of the public domain. It ensures that the positive effects of the mentor's actions will continue without him or her.

Natural transition of life

Often it is a person in the mid-stages of their career that is interested in becoming a mentor. Not only does it provide them with an opportunity to pass on the wisdom they have learned over the years, it affords them a chance for introspection and reassessment of their career.
