Mentoring Readiness

Create a Successful Mentoring Program Plan

While the results of a successful mentoring program are immeasurably rewarding, the process of planning a mentoring program - or reviewing the success of an existing program - can be a big challenge. Whether you are setting up a mentoring program for the near future, or looking to improve an already-running mentoring program, several questions must first be answered, including:

  • Is everyone clear regarding the precise definition of "mentoring" within our organization/team/program?

  • What expectations do stakeholders (mentors, mentees, managers, HR, and business sponsors) have of the program?

  • Do all stakeholders and mentoring program participants fully understand their roles?

  • Has a specific set of program and partnership objectives been agreed upon by key decision makers?

  • How will program ROI be measured? What specific success metrics will be used?

The Hi-Impact Mentoring® M*O*R*E (Mentoring Organizational Readiness and Effectiveness) Workshop is an expert-led strategy session in which key stakeholders will be guided in answering those specific questions, and many more, which are crucial to the success of mentoring as a business strategy. In the workshop, stakeholders will:

  • Understand the critical success factors of any mentoring program and how to avoid mistakes

  • Build a business case for mentoring to position it strategically and measure success

  • Gain expert advice on managing program challenges and avoiding pitfalls

Depending on your needs, the workshop can take either a one or two-day format, facilitated on-site or at any other convenient location.

Program Planning Benefits

Mentor Certification

Whether the focus of your mentoring initiative is formal or informal, having good, qualified mentors is important.

A good mentoring program facilitates accountability for its mentors. Mentors take responsibility for sharing knowledge and assisting in their mentees' development. Whether that development comes through career advice, personal advice, or teaching skills and competencies, the mentee depends on guidance, direction, and knowledge from the mentor that he or she feels is more experienced and knowledgeable in a given area than the mentee.

Our Mentor Certification program helps your organization optimize its mentoring program by ensuring that your mentors are qualified and dedicated to the success of their program.
