A mentor is someone who has the expertise that will benefit another person. Successful mentoring programs encourage employee engagement, spread institutional wisdom and develop organizational performance. Mentored individuals typically are more committed to the organization, adapt more quickly to organizational change and demonstrate accountability.
Participants in this course will be able to distinguish mentoring from other leadership and management tools and create successful learning partnerships that will empower performance through accountability.
