Realize exceptional benefits through mentoring
Could Your Institution Benefit from a Better Mentoring Program?
Mentoring programs are an important part of professional development and can help both institution and faculty. However, they don’t always work in practice as well as they do conceptually. Also, many universities are unable to assess their mentoring program’s effectiveness.
AAL helps institutions build effective mentoring programs that:
- Improve job performance, satisfaction, and retention
- Address knowledge and skill gaps
- Equip employees to achieve higher levels of well-being
- Foster an understanding of best practices within your organization
- Promote interprofessional collaboration
- Support personal and professional development for both mentors and mentees
How We Do It
Developing an effective mentoring program requires thoughtful planning and sustained attention to ensure that faculty buy into the program and find it valuable. AAL will lead you through the essential steps in developing a mentoring program:
Establish support of the leadership.
Undertake a needs assessment of faculty.
Administer personal assessments to all faculty to facilitate the matching of mentees and mentors.
Attain a clear consensus on program goals, the structure of the program, training for faculty, an evaluation plan, and the steps to sustain the customized mentoring program.
Train faculty to help mentors take a coaching stance in this role and to assist mentees in making optimal use of their mentoring experience.
Evaluate the outcomes of the mentoring program, share these with faculty, and adjust the program based on mentee and mentor feedback.
Make the program sustainable by incorporating mentoring into existing systems, train leadership to continue modeling coaching behavior and provide booster sessions for faculty.
