Successful Mentoring Skills

Successful mentoring can make or break the development of human capital in an organization - especially when succession planning is an issue. Planning for the future in a real-life, intimate way is exactly what mentoring programs are all about. Mentoring programs encourage relationships that support the learning and development of targeted employee populations. They are established to create accountability for development and accessibility to developmental relationships. Effective mentoring requires commitment and the development of a specific skill set.
