“Happy to have found a mentor and I am enjoying our conversations so far and what appears to be an opportunity for mutual support/value-exchange. Thank you.”
Laura was a fantastic mentor! I am immensely grateful for the guidance and support that she provided me. Her insightful advice and encouragement was instrumental in my personal and professional growth.
Great to connect with a leader outside of my industry but within the same scope of business. Enjoyed the conversation.
We knew we wanted to bring a mentoring program to the organization as an added value to our Colleagues. Our Learning Team strives to drive a culture of knowledge sharing, skill development, and colleague engagement; and the organization, overall, felt a mentoring opportunity would be a great fit for this.
The mentoring program is the first program within our organization to cross divisions, providing colleagues an opportunity to enter a mentoring relationship with someone they may have never met otherwise.
We have included our DE&I initiatives in our sign-up form and have read great testimonials from the knowledge-sharing that is happening.
Looking to the Future
Our program has a steadily increasing matching rate and we hope to continue to grow by the end of 2023.
We would like to, one day, utilize the Group Loops function. Additionally, we will be participating in future Mentorloop Challenges and look forward to gathering data to support the mentoring program.
The right mentoring program should level the playing field to empower entire cohorts of people: workplaces, member associations, social groups and educational institutions. Equality should be a cherished value so that every individual can thrive—whoever they are, whatever their background, however they worship or whomever they love. But we can’t arrive at equality without it’s often forgotten partner, equity.
Being a Mentoring Program Coordinator is an incredibly rewarding experience that positively impacts the lives of many. And while mentoring programs don’t fully run themselves (even though Mentorloop can do a great deal of the heavy lifting!), they do require a point of contact that can steer the program in the right direction for the organisation that is running one.
This is Part 8 of our 10-part series on the 10 Key Qualities and Habits of a Highly Effective Mentor.
In this post, we’ll look at how mentors can successfully build quality feedback into their mentoring. Quality feedback is priceless because it clarifies expectations, helps people learn from their mistakes, and builds confidence. It also allows mentees to more effectively take what their mentors say and turn it into action.
