A GUIDE to the MENTOR PROGRAM LISTINGS
INCLUSION
CRITERIA
To appear in this list of examples, mentor programs must meet specific criteria. Either the organization has agreed to have its description included or the description appeared in public documents such as professional literature or publically accessible Internet documents. Many corporations contacted by Peer Resources have mentoring programs and requested that their mentor activities remain confidential because they believed that their mentor program provided them with a productivity edge over their competition, or they believed their approach to mentoring should remain private.
DEFINITION
of
MENTORING
While the professional and popular literature is fairly consistent about a definition of mentoring, for the purposes of these program listings, we conclude that formal mentorship has the following characteristics:
  • a deliberate, conscious, voluntary relationship:
  • that may or may not have a specific time limit;
  • that is sanctioned or supported by the corporation, organization, or association (by time, acknowledgement of supervisors or administrators, or is in alignment with the mission or vision of the organization);
  • that occurs between an experienced, employed, or retired person (the mentor) and one or more other persons (the partners);
  • and typically takes place between members of an organization, corporation, or association, or between members of such entities and individuals external to or temporarily associated with such entities;
  • who are generally not in a direct, heirarchical or supervisory chain-of-command;
  • where the outcome of the relationship is expected to benefit all parties in the relationship (albeit at different times) for personal growth, career development, lifestyle enhancement, spiritual fulfillment, goal achievement, and other areas mutually designated by the mentor and partner;
  • with benefit to the community within which the mentoring takes place;
  • and such activities taking place on a one-to-one, small group, or by electronic or telecommunication means; and
  • typically focused on interpersonal support, guidance, mutual exchange, sharing of wisdom, coaching, and role modelling.
