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
