Impact on the Organization
Mentoring can be a powerfully effective way of communicating corporate goals and values, and transferring critical skills and knowledge. Many companies have traditionally relied upon spontaneous, informal mentoring to identify high-potential employees and guide them into the realm of management. But, given the intensity of the current workplace environment and the existing commitments of senior managers, it’s no longer enough to hope that mentoring “will just happen.” This module is designed to help organizations systematically promote mentoring relationships that work: relationships in which an individual with greater expertise or experience successfully counsels, guides, and coaches a less experienced individual, both professionally and personally.
- Integrate mentoring concepts into the workplace
- Review principles of adult learning
- Introduce proven processes for establishing mentoring pairs
- Define mentoring steps and time-lines
- Provide tools for protégé/mentor self-evaluation
This module begins by reviewing mentoring concepts and helping participants apply them in their own specific company environments. Participants review the principles of adult learning, discuss how to establish mentoring pairs, and discover tools that can be used to promote the mentoring process. They will participate in role plays of mentoring situations that often arise during the relationship. Finally, they will receive checklists they can use throughout the process.
Typically 4 hours.
