Evaluations And Reviews: Here Is How Mentoring Program Are Prone To ImprovementPerformance Measurement
Now and then, the mentor must evaluate and review the mentoring program. Evaluation allows the mentor to adjust the program and make changes. This program helps mentees understand how they have improved. Evaluation can be done mid-program or towards the end. Also, it can be done either through constructive criticism or an informal feedback session.
Mentees need to have an open mind to accept constructive feedback or criticism as the general purpose of a mentoring program is to improve. For mentors, the evaluation program is a great way to plug loopholes in the program.
To create a planned evaluation program, the following steps are helpful:
1. Find out the purpose of the evaluation program
2. During the program, re-check the purpose and guidelines
3. Find out a way to collect evaluation data
4. Prepare evaluation planning worksheets
If the evaluation is done during a mentoring program, mentors must give mentees sufficient time to grasp the program's learning and apply them in their daily lives, and this will help mentees scale within that time frame.
Both mentors and mentees can ascertain how they have benefitted from the program at the end of the evaluation program.
Questionnaires are an excellent method to determine the effectiveness of the mentoring program. Mentors can also provide solid feedback to the mentees and suggest how mentees can work on those specific areas.
