What do AT&T, General Motors, DuPont and Federal Express all have in common?

They are all using mentoring programs to develop employee career enhancing skills and to leverage the knowledge and experience of their senior executives. In addition, leading property management companies are using mentoring programs to develop future leaders and to retain their SuperStars. Our coaching systems will show you the important steps for creating a mentoring program because your people and their continued development are your company's greatest assets.

Why do mentoring programs work?
Mentoring programs will support the organizational mission of your team and will make a strong statement about the values within your property management company. In addition, a mentoring program will help to rejuvenate long term employees as they see and watch the growth of their mentees. Since 1992 DuPont has created mentoring relationships for 6,000 of the company's 58,000 employees. Based on their experience, listed below are some of the reasons why mentoring programs work:

  • Mentoring programs will help attract and retain property management SuperStars.
  • Mentoring provides targeted, individualized training and coaching.
  • Mentoring requires mentees to be responsible for their own development.
  • Mentoring provides timely information for a mentee.
  • Mentoring can help with diversity efforts.
  • Mentoring is time-efficient.
  • Mentoring will set your property management company apart from your competitors.
  • Mentoring helps develop future leaders.
  • Mentoring allows creative ideas to flourish.

As a leader, creating a mentoring program for your property management company will have both tangible and intangible benefits. In addition, launching a new program of any kind takes confidence and courage. Ready to take the next step?
