Coaching and mentoring programs help professionals grow, develop and learn new skills under the direction and advice of a seasoned expert. Organizations implement mentoring programs to align the goals of the company with the professional development of its employees. The coach and mentor helps the new employee set specific goals related to the job. The two work together to create a plan to reach those goals. Coach and mentor can customize objectives and support that that employee needs for his particular role. The coach and mentor is also available as a resource if the new employee needs support along the way to be successful. Having a set of challenging goals is motivating and empowers the employee to work beyond the minimum requirements.
