Mentoring within Organizations

 

Mentoring for Organizational Success for Today & Tomorrow (MOSTT)

“Organizations that encourage and train their people in the skills of mentoring may reap their rewards as long as those people are employed there. Organizations often benefit from their investment in mentoring for years, even decades, because of what has been passed from mentor to mentee and back again.” (Shea, G. 1999)
