Purpose of Mentoring

Mentoring is another method of transferring tacit knowledge. Many abilities and skills defy codification and they can be transferred only through observation and inculcation from people who have those abilities. Mentoring in an organization can be well established as an integral part of the corporate culture with senior management’s visible, frequent and continuing support. It helps to improve the pool of talent for management and technical jobs and helps to shape future leaders. Mentoring is an effective vehicle for moving knowledge through the organization from people who have the most experience and learning. Among the most important aspects of a good mentoring relationship is to meet on a regular basis without which good relationship cannot be established. The roles of mentor include being a counselor, coach, advisor, broker, referral agent and advocate.
