Mentoring is a powerful approach by which one person, with relevant experience, helps another person, with lesser experience, to do their job more effectively and progress in their career. While mentoring is often provided in an informal manner, organizations are recognizing the power of establishing a formal approach to mentoring to help emerging talent gain a solid foothold in the organization.
Studies show that a powerful way to engage employees, improve performance, and build loyalty is to create a mentoring program. Pairing less experienced workers with tenured workers, for example, can help keep the lines of communication open, demonstrate an interest in their long-term goals and success, identify opportunities to meet those goals, and assist in succession planning by passing on values, expertise, and experience.

You will discover the necessary qualities of a mentor, how to pair mentors with learners, and tools for launching and sustaining a successful mentoring initiative.
