Mentoring

Mentoring relationships provide new (and continuing) employees the opportunity to learn more about the institution’s culture; interact with individuals with similar backgrounds, work experience, and roles; and develop a support network. Such relationships can exist on a number of levels (e.g. between or within departments and divisions) and can provide coaching for new managers, star performers, and employees with performance concerns.

  • Mentoring networks: A significant effort is required both to establish and to maintain such networks, and several issues need to be worked out in advance (such as who is eligible to be a mentor, how are they assigned, what are the expectations for participants, etc.)
  • Managers: To further assist with development of successful managers we recommend creating a managerial mentoring network, which would build a cohort of managers who could mentor one another.
