What is Mentoring?
Mentoring is a dynamic, evolving partnership where a knowledgeable and caring person invests time, know-how and effort into enhancing another person's growth, knowledge, or skill. He or she often responds to critical needs in the life of that person in ways that prepare the individual for greater satisfaction, productivity and achievement.
Effective mentoring programs provide a lasting structure to foster helping relationships among key individuals, new employees, or--ideally--throughout the organization. Prospective employees perceive mentoring programs as an indication that the organization values its people.
