A proven process for employee mentoring

A proven four-step mentoring process

A research-based mentoring process designed to help your employees get the most out of their mentoring experiences.

Research has shown that if mentoring relationships don't follow an intentional process, they tend to diminish over time.

If used effectively, the process will help your mentoring relationships form easily, work productively, and end in a natural and fulfilling manner.

"We are a successful company because our employees not only focus on making great products,
