A practical, comprehensive guide to running successful mentoring programmes covering every aspect of designing, managing and running a mentoring programme is now available.
Nelson Marlborough District Health Board, based in Nelson, New Zealand, purchased a copy of The Mentoring Toolkit in support of an internal mentoring programme currently being implemented. This is what they said about it:
' We found the Toolkit extremely useful to our project. It is comprehensive, practical and easy to apply. Out of a number of similar resources on the market it proved to be extremely good value for money. Whether you are a mentor or mentee looking for support and guidance, or an organisation looking to implement a mentoring programme, we would recommend the Toolkit.'

Mentoring is quickly becoming a byword for:
Recently undertaken research shows the following facts about mentoring:
One of the most effective tools for people’s development (Mckinsey 2000)
One of the top two most powerful leadership development tools (Institute of management 1500 UK Managers)
71% Fortune 500 use mentoring (Business Finance Magazine)
Delivers tangible benefits to individuals/companies (99%)
Transfers learning from training courses to the workplace (94%, CIPD)
Positive impact on bottom line (92%, CIPD)
This is probably why many more organisations of all kind of size are now thinking of implementing mentoring, to tap into their existing talent and reap the benefits of an empowered workforce!
However, the very same organisations are finding it increasingly difficult to decide what kind of mentoring is right for them, what options are available and how to roll out a programme successfully.
Typically, questions will include:
What type of objectives can we achieve through mentoring?
How can we get buy in?
How much time is required to run a mentoring programme?
How do we recruit the right mentors and mentees?
How do we promote and sustain a mentoring programme?
What if relationships do not work out?
NOW, to help organisations design and run a successful mentoring programme, Shine have collected and condensed the knowledge acquired over several years of running and implementing programmes within one step-by-step toolkit that provides all the answers to your questions as well as ready made templates, tips and plenty of practical advice to ensure a successful implementation of mentoring in your workplace.
