Many mentoring programs miss the mark because of a lack of alignment to business goals and strategy and because they fail to clearly articulate the goals of the program from the outset. Others fail because of poor mentor/mentee matches and insufficient training at the beginning of the program.
Horace McCormick, Program Director at UNC Executive Development, has recently published the talent management white paper, How to Build a Successful Mentoring Program. Horace will cover this topic on his October 23rd webcast at 1PM EST. Specifically he will:
Discuss the benefits of effective mentoring programs and why more employers are embracing mentoring programs in their organizations;
Delineate the difference between coaching and mentoring;
Review various types of mentoring programs;
Offer steps HR and talent management professionals can use to launch successful and sustainable mentoring programs in their organizations, and;
Provide examples of mentoring programs being used in organizations today.
