Many organizations are finding themselves in a delicate position because they feel that they do not have enough qualified candidates working for them and are not sure what to do.  They do not see enough leaders sitting at their fingertips and are starting to panic.  Some of these same companies are experiencing very large turnover rates, thus increasing their expenses.  Instead of tossing away thousands of dollars on turnover employees, the best solution is to invest those monies into a solid mentoring program.  A formal mentoring program is a great investment.  There are many different types of programs to choose from.  All you need to do is speak to a mentoring expert and have them help you design a program that will be tailored to your needs.  After you implement it, the next few steps are quite simple.  The first step is to take the time to get to know your employees.  The next step would be to select the employees you feel that have the potential to excel.  Lastly, embrace those high potential employees and help them develop into becoming your future leaders by having them participate in the mentoring program.  Providing tools and resources to educate your employees on leadership and management skills should help reduce your turnover rate.  Besides, if employees see advancement opportunities and formal programs for career progression, your organization will be demonstrating that you care about their future.  Significant advances in technology has paved the way to facilitate the mentoring process, so give us a call today to learn how we can help you develop your leaders of tomorrow.
