True mentorship is about an ongoing
relationship of learning, dialog and challenge.
Mentorship is a personal developmental relationship in which a more experienced or more knowledgeable person helps to guide a less experienced or less knowledgeable person. True mentorship is more than just answering occasional questions or providing assistance getting acclimated. It’s about an ongoing relationship of learning, dialog and challenge.
Leadership practices that support organizational efforts to train, coach and develop its people are typically seen throughout the orientation (on boarding) process; the cornerstone of which everything is tied back to the company mission,vision, values and principles. Practices that set this as the expectation early and often, from the very first day (or interview), tend to be more effective than organizations practicing routine “check the box” processes throughout the levels of their training programs.
