  • Interaction Among Different Departments

    When a mentoree is looking to be paired with a mentor, the first thing that usually occurs to most of them is to be placed with a mentor in their department.  Someone familiar, someone they may interact with daily, or just a friend.  While that can be an option, it is beneficial to consider pairing your mentoree with a mentor from a different department.   Not only can you find someone that will be compatible, but you will also foster the opportunity for each participant to learn more about not only the other person, but the role that each one plays in the organization and in their corresponding departments.  That connection enables each person to understand the importance each department plays within the organization.  Thus, being a valuable experience for both parties involved.

  • Feel Like A Failed Mentor?

    Some people do not want to think about being a mentor because of all of the responsibilities that go into it, while others are very quick to take on the challenge.  However, after taking that challenge, some people may start to get frustrated and feel as though things are not going as they had envisioned.  If you fall into this category, there are a few things to consider.  Are you putting in a reasonable amount of time and effort into the relationship?  Are you worried about your mentee taking over your job?  Have you put your mentoring relationship at the bottom of your pile?  If you are looking for a way to enhance your skills, I would like you to consider our e-learning course, Mentoring Success: Maximizing Your Mentoring Experience.  It introduces mentors and mentorees to mentoring skills and the key concepts of corporate mentoring programs and teaches you how to develop successful mentoring relationships. It can supplement existing mentoring training or be used as a standalone. Either way, it allows you to learn at your own pace. You will be provided with your results when the course is completed. The course is perfect for individuals in companies engaged in mentoring programs, managers who want to expand their mentoring skills, and individuals who are seeking mentoring relationships.
