Goodwill Efforts That Help To Strengthen Your Organization
Having good mentors for your new recruits, volunteers, and interns, can increase your employee motivation and productivity.
A good mentor will be able to share their knowledge and skills.They are not someone who has to know everything, and attempts to make a new recruit or mentee, feel inferior. Rather, a good mentor is a mature seasoned leader and can easily demonstration enthusiasm in their field of expertise. They are open to learning from others themselves.
Qualities of a good mentor:
1. Mentors openly share information, and have excellent communication skills.
2. They are positive role models, teachers, and trainers, who empower others.
3. They stay current on issues and find ways to continually increase their knowledge, and they genuinely enjoy sharing what they have learned with others.
4. They understand the time commitment required to be successful, and take a special interest in developing and building new relationships.
5. Mentors are fair and balanced when it comes to giving constructive feedback and guidance when needed.
“If your mentors only tell you that you are awesome, it’s time to find other mentors.”Cosette Gutierrez
6. They are a respected part of the organization, and their opinions are valued.
7. A good mentor will be willing to listen, and have a considerate nature when it comes to dealing with personal issues.
8. They have the ability to handle diverse situation and personalities. This helps with professional development, and working relationships between teams and departments.
With the company’s goodwill in mind, mentors help to develop a culture rich in professional development, and accomplishment. Accepted as an essential strategy, the use of corporate mentoring programs helps with retaining and attracting new recruits.
Whether you are a corporation with 100’s or 1000’s of employee, a scout leader, or soccer coach, having a good mentor that can foster and develop skills within your teams is vital.
“The best way a mentor can prepare another leader is to expose him or her to other great people.” John C. Maxwell
When you incorporate a mentoring program into your company or organization, look for those individuals who are knowledgeable in their field, and have a true desire to continue to learn, and enjoy sharing that knowledge openly with others.
