Kram and Cohen on Mentoring
This is one of three How To videos on business mentoring … Katherine Kram identified four stages in a mentoring relationship – it is important to recognise that there is a recognised process if you wish to adopt a mentoring programme in your business. Cohen has identified key skills a mentor needs to possess to support the mentees progress.
Feel free to request the templates firstname.lastname@example.org. I am happy to share.
1. Recognise the four stages of the mentoring process. Ensure potential mentors (formal and informal) understand the journey.
2. Assess the role competencies of formal and informal mentors in your business.
3. Download the Principles of Adult Mentoring as a self assessment exercise with potential mentors.
Please do share your experiences with this model in the comments below. I am building a portfolio of small business case studies and would love to include examples of what has worked well for you.
