MEASURING MENTORING

tape-measuresHow does anybody KNOW if mentoring is working?

Is there any tangible evidence of mentoring success? Well, yes, there is.

It is possible to evaluate mentoring success using at least 3 basic measures:
PROFESSIONAL GROWTH: Is the mentee more competent? More able? More responsible for self-development?Becoming as good as can be and better than has been?

PERSONAL EMPOWERMENT: Does the mentee act with increased confidence, making decisions, charting a meaningful career direction?

Doe she or he take more ownership and become more pro-active? Does the mentee Deliver on initiatives with a sense of inner strength that is not over-inflated?

APPROPRIATE RISK-TAKING: Are communications authentic? Can mentor and mentee have honest exchanges about their partnership?

Can the mentee leave some comfort zones to experience breakthrough growth through learning and accomplishing in new arenas?

Measuring the mentoring process needs to be ON-GOING and has the goal of constant improvement at its core!
