Do-It-Yourself Mentoring Briefing

DIY Mentoring

You Need to Know the Benefits and Costs of Mentoring—
Before You Proceed!

Strategic Futures brings years of experience in assisting organizations in establishing mentoring programs: We have literally trained thousands of mentors and mentees in both the public and private sectors. We trained more than 3000 mentors and mentees at the Defense Finance and Accounting Service alone.

This briefing gives you the advantage of our insights and experience in a ready-to-go package that makes the best case for a mentoring program based on facts rather than hot air or “salesmanship.”

The Effective Mentoring Briefing – complete with ready-to-go PowerPoint slides and a suggested script contained in our Briefing Guide – equips your organization’s leadership with the concepts and tools needed to decide whether a mentoring program should be implemented.

Excerpt from Briefing Guide

The Briefing Guide offers slide-by-slide recommendations. For example…


Suggested Narrative: An effective mentor strategizes professional and career development moves with his or her mentee.  The mentor challenges the mentee to pursue professional development goals that are more aggressive than they might have otherwise chosen for themselves, i.e., to not just take a couple of accounting courses, but to go ahead and become a CPA, for example. Finally, the mentor champions the mentee, assisting in making introductions and increasing opportunities for the mentee to not only do good for the company, but to be seen doing good.
