A soundly built and well-run mentoring program benefits both the mentors and the mentees. How?
- Mentors grow in key leadership competencies such as developing others, providing direct, clear feedback, and becoming more self-aware
- Mentees more clearly understand and can better apply the firm’s norms, practices, and operating priorities
- Mentees boost their performance in management, technical, and relationship skills
A successful mentoring program also increases the organization’s bank of hard-to-capture core knowledge. The firm’s culture becomes more crisp and powerful as the norms and expectations that drive behavior are more widely disseminated.
