Mentoring is a process that focuses specifically on providing guidance, direction, and career advice. Mentoring programs can be either a standalone program or part of a training and development program within an organization. Organizations, including Federal agencies run standalone formal mentoring programs to enhance career and personal development. Not all mentoring relationships are formed through formal programs. Informal mentoring programs may also be effective in your organization to help facilitate these relationships.
