Mentoring & Coaching
Mentoring & Coaching
If performed well, the benefits of managers and leaders providing regular mentoring and coaching to junior professionals are profound, and certainly transcend the “feel good” factor.
Mentees often learn new skills, avoid mistakes, and gain the confidence to undertake stretch assignments which enables them to be more productive. In a recent survey, mentees said they believed their productivity had improved as a result of mentoring; 48% believed they had had more than a 50% improvement in productivity.
Competition for talent can be fierce, and it can be challenging and costly to retain talent. The cost of replacing staff can be up to five times an employee’s annual wages if they choose to leave the organization.
Not only does mentoring-coaching signal to job candidates that your organization is dedicated to their ongoing development, but it builds loyalty and increases job satisfaction, thereby boosting retention. Studies show that professional that receive mentorship and coaching are half as likely as their peers to consider leaving their organization.
Improved Talent Management
Senior managers gain a deep and personal understanding of their employees, positioning them to make better decisions regarding assigning work, as well as identifying best performers (and high potential employees).
Better Communication & Corporate Culture
Communication silos can cost money through misallocation of resources, inefficiencies, and failure to leverage internal successes and economies of scale. Good Mentoring programs increase both the quality and the quantity of communication across internal boundaries.
Similarly, mentoring and coaching by leaders who embody the values and behaviors your organization wants to promote creates a positive cycle of role modelling.
Your corporate culture is reinforced, and any (cultural) changes are accelerated.
Increased Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
The mutual deep and personal understanding that mentors and mentees develop breaks down cultural, ethnic, and gender barriers that can lead to talent blindness. This helps leaders identify talent from a broader, more diverse pool.
