This might be the best piece of software I've ever used. We were able to grow our mentoring programme here at LEAD Network, thanks to the efficiency and functionality we gained by having Mentorloop. Now we’re in a position to significantly scale the reach and impact our mentoring programme to our members!
Mentorloop streamlines the mentoring process, promotes structured communication, and fosters a culture of growth and collaboration within organizations with features that cater to both mentors and mentees. For us at Heinemann, Mentorloop is an indispensable tool for unlocking the full potential of mentorship programs.
Through efficient matching tools and resources to structure mentoring relationships, we have shifted the heavy-lifting part of mentoring, getting our people focused on driving their own development and having quality conversations.
Mentorloop came out as the lowest investment, highest value learning program that we run. Mentorloop is the lowest investment for us in terms of the cost of the platform and resourcing to manage and to report on.

Connecting those newly affected by spinal cord injury with someone who has ‘been there’ and lived through similar challenges, the Back Up Trust Mentoring Programme helps people to feel less isolated and more empowered to live life to the fullest.
Having a different and ‘outsider’ perspective helps so much. Sometimes you’re so stuck in a situation, that it’s hard to see another point of view. Mentoring also helps me be responsible for my own career development as I have to set clear goals at the start and check in to see how I am tracking with those goals.
Very easy to use
Easy to use, clear and concise. The layout was good overall. It allows users to connect to mentors easily and organise goals with them.

This program, and in particular the luck I’ve been given to be assigned my mentor, has come at the perfect time in my career. I am wanting to take the next step – which in my opinion is a much bigger step than I’ve previously taken. So, to have a guiding hand, who is in my corner, who has an outsider’s perspective without any preconceived notions of my role or the people I work with, has been really helpful. I’ve really turned around my thinking and am ready to create a strategic game plan with my mentor on how I can achieve these goals and what I need to do to get there.

I now have a better appreciation of what the younger generation is experiencing so am able to be more effective in my professional world.
Mentoring the next generation of leaders is a rewarding experience and I would encourage others to give back.
Framework for developing a friendship and mentorship
I believe the best part about it was having such a structured framework that began the conversation with my mentor. At times I didn’t know what I should be talkig to them about so I came back to Mentoorloop for suggestions.
Mentoring has brought me great satisfaction – to even marginally affect the life and career of a talented individual, it is so rewarding.
I think the secret to good mentoring comes from the mentee primarily. They have to genuinely want to enter into the relationship honestly and be open to ideas and work with the mentor to develop their full potential. On the mentor’s part, it is essential not to be directive but to encourage the mentee to discover their own unique talents and capabilities.
Mentorloop is a great way to connect, share experiences and evolve your mentoring skills
Easy to use, keeps the conversation private, and provides good options for sharing goals. It’s providing a platform for many others like me who want to develop their mentoring skills, and for mentees to share experiences and ask for advice using a single platform.
This opportunity has brought with it, the ability to speak out and bring a new perspective into discussions, meetings, and being heard.
Open communication is key to a good mentorship relationship, prioritizing both formal and informal meetings and catch up also helps form a connection between the mentor and mentee.
Powerful tool for establishing and managing mentoring relationships
The software is convenient and provides essential information for making the most of your time with your mentor. I am able to connect with like-minded people from around the country and am not limited to those who are physically in the same location as me. It is convenient to use.
I leave each conversation with something to think about and some actions to carry out before the next meeting. My advice for others – don’t be quick to make any recommendations. Listen to your mentees and get to know them first. There is no secret, it’s about being open and honest and giving each other things to consider and think about.
Mentoring helped me pivot my career for the better
It can be difficult to access senior leaders or other people in your industry. Mentorloop connects people.

Personally, my time being a mentee has changed the way I approach challenges in general, and now look at them as opportunities and not things that should get me down. When I don’t know which road I should take or have the answer, I now know it’s okay not to have an answer or solution for everything life puts in front of you. For my mentoring matches, I could see them also make that step following our discussions and sharing personal experiences and how things can be approached from a place of balanced confidence instead of imbalanced fear (of failure).
