Nowadays, mentors not only improve the mentee’s competencies and potential, but also contribute to making a difference, a change and an improvement in their personal lives.
In this sense, it is important to mention that the mentoring relationship creates bidirectional benefits, and that having the figure of a mentor is something that neither organizations nor people can leave to chance. The benefits it brings to every level of the organization are substantial for its development and progress. By designing these programs, four processes which are nowadays basic, according to organizational consultant María Luisa de Miguel, are achieved:
- Accelerating the process of developing potential and therefore obtaining talent for the organization in a faster way.
- Capitalizing on the knowledge accumulated by the people within the organization and spreading it.
- Generating bonds and valuable relationships among people. Creating a feeling of belonging improves performance, productivity and organizational commitment.
- Facilitating and accelerating the processes of change and transition which are constantly happening within companies, allowing a better and faster adaptation to new challenges and demands.
Tools that enhance the process!
Starting a mentoring process with the PDA Assessment allows all the involved parties to have a deep knowledge of the fundamental elements to work on. It is an efficient way to identify the mentee’s strengths and areas of opportunity, allowing the creation of a more informed and conscious path to success. In addition, it creates a relationship that arises from understanding the natural styles of both parties and the best way to complement each other.
