How To Develop An Effective Mentoring Program
|Date / Time:
Creating a structured mentoring program is a powerful way to support the personal growth and career development of employees.
Mentoring also enhances the stability and productivity of an organization through employee retention, succession planning, transfer of knowledge, and leadership development.
The problem is that many businesses believe that mentoring consists of just putting two people together - but this is not accurate. Without proper planning, mentoring programs are bound to fail.
This webinar demystifies workplace mentoring by focusing on specific tasks described in mentoring's Effective Practices. Addressed in chronological order, the tasks are: recruiting, screening, training, matching, monitoring and support, and providing closure. In addition to discussing these basic mentoring program tasks, the facilitators will discuss the training materials and documentation needed for successful mentoring efforts.
After this class, you will have a much better understanding of the steps needed to design and implement an effective workplace mentoring program.

|About Webcasts / Audio Conferences / Podcasts:|
Webcasts, audio conferences, and podcasts are presentations that you
attend via the Internet, phone, or mobile device at a specified date and time for "live" versions, or at your convenience for "recorded" and "On-Demand" versions.
versions are interactive, meaning that participants can ask questions in real time, plus are a very cost-effective form of training because 1) you receive fast, convenient learning without
any out-of-office time; 2) you can invite as many colleagues as you'd like to listen in on a single phone line; 3) you incur no travel expenses; and 4) you and your colleagues are back
at work immediately after the session ends!
And though with recorded versions you do lose the ability to ask questions, you gain the ability to hear the presentation numerous
times and to share it with others in your office.
Handout materials and the phone number for live presentations are made available to you prior to the event via email from the
presenter and from the "MyAccount" link on the menu bar. Copies of the presentations are included with recorded versions.
