Is your mentoring program valuable? Does it contribute to the achievement of business goals? A mentoring program's survival depends on how successfully it contributes to mentee growth. Companies must make the best use of resources to remain competitive. When resources are stretched thin, organizations need to know how much their mentoring programs are contributing to the bottom line. Evaluating the progress of mentoring relationships and measuring the success of the mentoring program are vital to sustaining it. And knowing when to successfully and tactfully end mentoring relationships will make the best use of resources. This course considers how mentors can use self-assessment to identify and address skill gaps to maintain successful mentoring relationships. It also examines the qualitative and quantitative methods used to evaluate mentoring programs and how to assess the overall effectiveness of the program. Finally, the course provides guidelines on how to effectively end mentoring relationships when there are difficult circumstances or when the relationship has successfully completed its objectives.
