Developing a mentoring culture costs very little… and yet offers great benefits.
However, most mentoring systems around are not sustainable: mentors or mentees “drop the ball” quickly. We know why and how to avoid such failure. One of our success-factors is that we gear mentors with selected coaching skills, which help them “drive for results” all the way to success.
We develop company-specific mentoring systems, effective in an Asian workplace, along 3 steps:
Step 1: Design your Mentoring system
- Mentors’ competencies description, suiting your Company’s Culture and challenges
- Key-success factors for sustainability of a mentoring culture in your Company
- System-draft and test
- Final system
Step 2: Implement the system
- Communication on the “mentoring culture”, to motivate all
- Mentors’ selection and training, with 80% role-play and focused on quick-wins
- Mentees’ selection (create perception of a “privilege”)
- System implementation (attention on discipline)
Step 3: Assess system-effectiveness and improve it
- Follow-up and measure effectiveness
- “Trouble-shooting” session with mentors
- System improvement and “mentors’ club” launch
Your mentoring system documentation will typically cover:
- Introduction to Mentoring
- Vocabulary & acronyms
- Main goal for Company
- Mentor’s competency description
- Qualification process for Mentors
- Qualification process for Mentees
- Training of the Mentors (full course content)
- Tools for mentoring (formal and informal)
- Follow-up and evaluation of the Mentoring system
- Appendices: forms, templates & processes, references
