In a recent ASTD/i4cp research report "Learning In a Down Economy," only 23% of learning professionals admit that their firms currently use mentoring and peer coaching to a high or very high extent, while more than 67% of learning executives say that they should be using mentoring or coaching to a high or very high extent. Mentoring, in any form, requires careful preparation. Establishing a successful structured mentoring program can reduce costs, shorten time to productivity for new hires, and help retain key talent. It may take some time and careful preparation, but in the end, a mentoring program that supports business goals can pay huge dividends for both the organization and the participants.
