Developing a Mentoring Process

Due to mentoring's effectiveness of developing more productive workers, it is in the organization's best interest to help guide it. This does not mean that it has to be a totally formal approach in which the organizations assigns mentoring relationships; but perhaps a more informal approach in which it provides learning opportunities to both mentors and protègès. Thus, 1) it can help guide and inform people looking for mentors, 2) develop future mentors, and 3) establish processes for the mentoring program.

People, Data, Things Assessment

This assessment is completed by both mentors and protègès. It is useful for matching a mentor's strengths to a protègè's need for improvement.

There are no right or wrong answers to this skill assessment. If you are a mentor, it is simply a guide to show what things you would be good at mentoring. If you are a protègè, it will help to determine what you would like to learn or need to improve.
