Mentors can play a critical role in developing leaders. In fact, many successful leaders point to mentors who helped them along their journeys to bring out the best in them. Many organizations create mentoring programs to focus the power of mentoring on those whom they wish to develop.
Unfortunately, it can be difficult to harness the power of mentoring if a program is not designed and executed well. Mentors need to know how to bring out the best in others . Protégés need to prepare themselves to get the most out of mentoring. And, organizations need to design programs that align with talent strategies and align with culture.
Our mentoring processes, which have been implemented in dozens of organizations across many industries, provide best practices in mentoring to maximize the effectiveness of mentoring programs.
Our mentoring processes have been developed over a decade and a half, resulting in thousands of mentor and protégé trainings that create successful mentoring partnerships. We focus on giving mentors the tools to guide the development of another and protégés on setting the direction for the mentoring relationship. We help organizations create systems that focus mentoring on those for whom it will provide the highest impact.
