When people in an organization first start thinking about mentoring, they usually want to start small to test the waters and see if it gains any traction. This is a smart approach, and one we support 110 percent.
That said, this is usually where organizations stumble.
- What should happen next?
- Who's in charge of creating the program?
- How big should it be?
These questions often go unanswered, resulting in a great idea being pushed to the back burner indefinitely.
Don't let this happen in your organization.
