Sneak peek

Set Clear Objectives

The mentor and the new hire should sit down together to establish clear SMART (specific, measurable, attainable, realistic, timely) goals. The mentoring relationship should center on the achievement of these goals.

 

Establish a Schedule Mentors and mentees should meet on a regular basis to formally review progress to date and next steps. The mentoring relationship should also include a strong informal component, as the new hire should be able to approach their mentor any time with questions or concerns. Formal meetings, however, ensure the program stays on track.

 

Train Your Mentors

If possible, put potential mentors through their own training programs in advance of pairing them with new hires. You’ll see better results from the program if your mentors are well versed in effective mentoring techniques.
