Introduction to the Module M1

Now the majority of organisations implements mentoring in a systemic way, integrating it into the corporate management and culture. Systemness means standardisation of the mentoring process through:

  • introduction of clear principles, criteria that must be met by an employee to get support in the mentoring form;
  • development of the information and communication strategy;
  • gaining the pool of mentors, i.e. profesionalists who meet criteria defined by the organisation (e.g. completed mentor training and have specified professional experience);
  • determining the process course – specifying the principles for the mentor's selection, determination and approval of mentoring purposes, number and duration of the session;
  • establishing the process monitoring mehod – finding an answer to the questions: does mentor report the process course? If yes, how often, to what extent and how? How does it apply to confidentiality principles?
  • determination of the method to verfy efficiency of the process exeucted – establishment of who and according to what criteria shall assess effectiveness of the mentor-mentee work.

All these elements require being planned prior to the mentoring process start.
