A mentoring program, in any form has several benefits. And, those benefits are not just for the one being mentored! There are benefits to the organization and the mentor as well. In fact, I implemented speed mentoring in an organization, in conjunction with their quarterly senior leadership meetings and it was the highlight of the meetings. Every leader from the top on down, enthusiastically signed up to be a mentor in this “speed” format and always enjoyed themselves. But there is more to the benefits of participating than just being fun.
