Thinking of setting up a mentoring scheme? Here are some top tips to improve the chances of success:
- Educate mentees in how to choose and use a mentor – this will provide a better return on investment than training people in how to be good mentors
- Offer a mentor matching service – but always encourage people to look for their own mentors first – this ensures relevance
- Always encourage people to check out a few potential mentors rather than allocating them one
- Train people who have already been approached to become mentors – avoid training a whole bunch of people who want to mentor, but for whom there is no demand
Please do add more….
