It combines different methodologies, techniques, tools, and standards that are acceptable for different organizations and structures.
Mentoring programs are increasingly demanded in both the public and commercial sectors for a variety of reasons. Because organizations are recognizing programs and projects as key strategic assets, and the movement to becoming project-based continues at a rapid pace, using mentors is a best practice in program and project management. Your mentor will work directly with you, your team members, and project managers to help them obtain PMP certification.
The mentorship will have three (3) main phases. The first phase is a timeline driven study with close guidance and daily 1-hour interaction with the mentor.

During the mentoring, the participant will be assisted in completing the application form, providing the most useful test, and providing a specific study timeline. At the end of the third phase, each mentoring participant will be given an individual recommendation on the path forward for the exam registration.
Business and Project Management Mentoring
A mentor shares information about her own career path, as well as provides counseling, advice, inspiration, emotional support, and is a role model. A mentor may help with exploring careers, setting goals, developing contacts, and identifying resources.
Mentoring is useful for individuals and organizations. It increases employee retention and is frequently used to support talent programs, allowing participants to get the most out of their participation by utilizing a mentor to assist them in embedding learning. This is one of the most practical and productive means of management skills, ensuring the achievement of project success and gaining business value.
The mentor actively assists in verifying that standards are followed and aids in the implementation of new processes, methods, and templates. This sort of targeted knowledge transfer from knowledgeable sources fosters the development of competencies that are more easily acquired through example, guided learning, and hands-on practice. While the mentor’s role is often to teach knowledge to the mentee, a mentoring relationship can also assist the more experienced employee in learning new skills. In a reverse mentoring model, younger employees might take on the role of mentor to discuss technical developments, trends, or sharpen their digital abilities. This is an area where the mentee can also act as a teacher, assisting the mentor in learning new skills or methods of operation.

What People Say
How real people said about Lela Machaidze
I feel very lucky to have Lela as a mentor. Thank you for all of the hard but necessary lessons that you have taught me. I have a tremendous amount of faith in myself and my abilities because of your ongoing encouragement. Thank you for always guiding me back to the right path and the last, the best result of our mentorship 3 months later I’ve passed the PMP exam.
I will be honest when saying that, me being PMP now is thanks to Lela Machaidze. Despite the fact that from the very first day I was introduced to project management I wanted to get this certification done & despite many years of working in this field and doing most of it – I did not have the courage to take the first step. Lela was the one to tell me I can do that. Her motivation, dedication, leadership, coaching & mentorship helped me a lot in this process.
In 2021, with 9 years of practical project management experience, I decided it was time to become a certified project manager and get PMP status. On this long journey, I was fortunate enough to meet Lela Machaidze as a supportive and caring mentor. Having a mentor like her is a blessing as besides being an expert in project management, she is truly passionate about the field and her attitude is contagious. On this difficult path to the goal of becoming PMP, Lela provided me with constant support, great motivation and showed confidence in me. It really helped me get to my destination successfully. Even more valuable in my experience with Lela is that she has the true talent to inspire you to turn your dreams into reality.
If you don’t like your daily routine and want insomnia and stress to become your best friends, then obtaining a PMP certificate is the right decision 😀 You have to understand that the preparation process might be one of the hardest in your life, but if you have a mentor like Lela on your side, the goal will be achieved. She is not only a mentor but a friend, family member, psychologist, and everyone you might need during your journey. She always knows how to motivate you and help you to find the strength to continue the learning process. The amount of the study materials is enormous and might seem impossible to learn, but at some point, you realize that somehow you managed to understand and learn it and now everything is in your head and it seems fun to make tests and use the tools and techniques in your work. You did it and this feeling is one of the best in life and of course, this wouldn’t be possible without Lela, who is a guiding star for all her mentees ❤️
Professionals have three stages of life. One, before the PMP when everything seems fine, and everything sort of makes sense. Second, preparing for PMP, when you only leave around the books, and the third once PMP is obtained. The only difference between the first and the third life is that processes ACTUALLY make sense. The closest comparison is to have smart eyeglasses all the time that guides and shows you the correct direction. Lela has an extraordinary ability to tame the untamed. She dedicates her time 24/7 towards the mentees to achieve the maximum capacity out of them.
Having been involved in various projects, I felt I wanted to improve my knowledge and skills in the implementation of modern work practices, but within the busy lifestyle, becoming a PMP seemed very unachievable;
However, Lela Machaidze instilled in me a sense of eagerness to begin my education.
The lesson learned from my PMP journey was that the right people have a crucial effect on the successful accomplishment of any hard goal.
I became aware of the PMP Certification while making my early steps in project management. Since then, I started researching what steps I could take to get the status of PMP. Fortunately, I found Lela Machaidze, who gave me wonderful mentorship throughout the whole journey towards the PMP. Despite the fact that the process of preparation is not easy, Lela gave me huge motivation, the right advice, and the inspiration to never give up, which finally helped me to achieve my aim. Being a PMP is proof of professionalism, as it outlines your strong personality and determines your path.
Having around 8 years of practical experience in the management of multilateral development bank-funded infrastructure projects, I decided to challenge myself and try becoming a certified project manager. After reviewing the worldwide recognition of different certification options, I have decided to pursue the Project Management Professional credential offered by the Project Management Institute.
There was a long journey ahead, and it would have been difficult to reach the destination without the tremendous support of Mrs. Lela Machaidze. It is worth mentioning that, besides being an expert in project management, she is truly passionate about the field. I believe this is what makes her stand out from the crowd. Being one of the students at the PMP exam preparation course in 2019, I have benefited from the possibility of being guided by her through the PM practices, tools & techniques, as well as the exam specifics with keen attention to detail. Even more valuable about my experience with Mrs. Machaidze is that she is also a highly skilled motivator and influencer, maintaining a positive attitude at all times.
The PMP Preparation Course was an amazing experience with Lela. She is exploring and trying to pull out things that not only she can use, but things her audience will benefit from. Thanks for guiding me on the right path and motivating me to move forward!
I’ve always wanted to be a professional in my job; therefore, the PMP certification meant a lot to me and always seemed unreachable until I met Lela. She believed in me and motivated me to take risks, and as in most cases, she was absolutely correct! With her mentorship and guidance, I was able to address my weaknesses and turn them into strengths, and as a result, I gained my PMP certificate. Even just following her on social media is already quite an educative and positive experience, not to mention her direct mentorship that makes you definitely understand that if you work hard enough, absolutely nothing is impossible!
