Mentor programs can be a great way to develop employees at any stage in their career. In my opinion, the success of the program is really dependent on the mentee. The program should also be loosely structured meaning a mentor should not be assigned. To explain further, the mentee needs to actively meet or court potential mentors. The goal during the courting phase should be to uncover how a potential mentor strengthens the mentee's skills or gaps. It should not be to find the one mentor that has everything in common. Do you agree or disagree? If your organization has a flourishing mentor program, what worked? But more importantly, what didn't? I'd love to learn more from everyone here.
