The Mentor / Mentee Relationship: How to Get the Best From Each Other
Often, when employees leave their company, it’s NOT just business – it’s personal. Maybe they’re not meshing well in the organization, maybe they feel isolated by coworkers, or they don’t get along with the boss…. these are all very real issues that a solid mentor program can address and, in some cases, even prevent. That’s because mentoring builds relationships - sometimes in very powerful ways – and it’s those relationships that can really help keep talented people with your organization longer. In this final session, we're going to break down the mentoring cycle into three parts: How to be a great mentor, how to be a great mentee, and how to build a great program. With more examples from companies that are getting it right, you'll learn the specific steps each party must take to develop a rewarding mentoring experience that translates into enhanced productivity on the job.
