DoD Mentoring Program

Strategic Futures® Mentoring Training has provided mentoring training to 2000+ U.S. Department of Defense employees in twenty-five US cities and in Japan and Germany. Our first one-day program builds skills necessary to develop a rich mentoring relationship. Our second one-day program builds skills for mentors to use in guiding rather than controlling mentees.

Under the leadership of a top agency executive who champions the effort for 14,000 employees, our client has now committed to doubling the number of mentoring relationships in the coming year. And, after two years of program development and staff training, the mentoring program is already showing results. A recent independent study conducted revealed exciting results from this program.
