Establishing Corporate Coaching and Mentoring Systems
Coaching and Mentoring Systems that are internally developed within the organization proved to be one of the practical ways of learning in organizations.
Based on our experience from completed projects, we have observed that the application of internal coaching and mentoring within organizations result in the following gains:
- Coaches/mentors and coachees/mentees show an increased sense of loyalty
- Coaches/mentors also focus more on their own personal development
- Coaches/mentors also focus on their own managerial development
- Organizations have the opportunity to question their own processes
- Experiences are shared within the organization
- The values and mission of the organization become more widespread
- There is an opportunity for a common language to be developed within the organization
- Desired change is brought about more easily within the system
- Skills are promoted
- Talents are more easily retained and developed
