Essential Mentoring Techniques: Mentoring Fundamentals

Mentoring can benefit everyone. Mentor relationships, whether formal or informal, are a key to enabling success in both our personal and professional lives. Facilitated mentoring programs offered by organizations can lead to employees acquiring knowledge and expertise more efficiently. These programs also offer other benefits, such as increasing employee retention and work productivity. The mentor relationship helps mentees work out what they want to achieve and how to get there, while benefiting the mentor in the capacity as a role model. Mentors are much more than coaches. They help the whole individual develop by providing advice and resources, supporting career goals, and celebrating achievements. This course reviews the objectives of mentoring programs and the benefits offered to employees, mentors, and the organization as a whole. It explores the expectations and roles of mentors, coaches, and managers to understand the distinct advantages of mentor relationships. Finally, it looks at what makes a mentoring program successful, considering the various mentoring models and approaches and how each contributes to making a mentoring program a good experience for all involved.

Essential Mentoring Techniques: Designing and Initiating Mentoring Programs

Mentoring programs are as varied as the organizations that implement them. Options include one-to-one, group, executive, and e-mentoring approaches. These all share common execution strategies that can establish your mentoring program as a viable function within your company. Understanding the goals required from your mentoring program and ensuring that support is available for both mentors and mentees will aid your decision on how to approach mentoring for your company. This course explores how to set up a successful mentoring program by looking at the elements that are needed to design and implement an effective program. It covers how to prepare and plan your program so that participants are oriented and connected effectively.

Essential Mentoring Techniques: Building and Maintaining Mentoring Relationships

Like all relationships, mentoring comes with its share of obstacles. Effectively building and maintaining a mentoring relationship is important for creating a satisfying and productive pairing. Although the mentee drives the growth phase of the mentoring relationship, the mentor's ability to effectively understand, gauge, probe, and respond to the issues the mentee brings to the table is a crucial aspect of maintaining a solid mentor-mentee bond. In this course, you'll learn how to manage the mentor-mentee relationship and how to respond appropriately to issues that arise. The course examines how to give constructive feedback that enables mentees to solve their own problems. It also provides guidelines on how to deal with program issues such as too much formality and too little support. It explains how to address interpersonal issues in order to sustain a valuable mentoring relationship.

Essential Mentoring Techniques: Evaluating and Ending the Mentoring Program

Is your mentoring program valuable? Does it contribute to the achievement of business goals? A mentoring program's survival depends on how successfully it contributes to mentee growth. Companies must make the best use of resources to remain competitive. When resources are stretched thin, organizations need to know how much their mentoring programs are contributing to the bottom line. Evaluating the progress of mentoring relationships and measuring the success of the mentoring program are vital to sustaining it. And knowing when to successfully and tactfully end mentoring relationships will make the best use of resources. This course considers how mentors can use self-assessment to identify and address skill gaps to maintain successful mentoring relationships. It also examines the qualitative and quantitative methods used to evaluate mentoring programs and how to assess the overall effectiveness of the program. Finally, the course provides guidelines on how to effectively end mentoring relationships when there are difficult circumstances or when the relationship has successfully completed its objectives.
  • recognize the steps for enhancing a mentoring relationship using results of a self-assessment
  • match mentoring skills with self-assessment questions used for developing and monitoring those skills
  • assess whether the correct steps are applied during a mentoring evaluation
