We asked one of our Mentoring Complete clients the following question:
Why do you think people join a mentoring program?
The client's response to us was:
“People join a mentoring program because they are curious and want to learn, or are ambitious and motivated to improve their career, or are stuck personally or professionally and want to find a new way to proceed.
The mentorees start out in search of these various goals, often with great energy but only a general idea of what they are looking for. The heroes in a mentoring program are the mentors who generously offer their time and wisdom to these seekers, guiding them down the paths that they themselves have walked.”
This is one great example of why people join a mentoring program.
It's a New Year. Don't you think it's a good time to start a mentoring program at your organization?
