Mentoring Hub - Training

We suggest all mentors and mentees take the online course “Fostering Mentoring Relationships” prior to your first mentoring meeting.

The course covers the benefits of mentoring programs for employees, mentors, and the organization as a whole and explores the differences between mentoring and coaching relationships.

What you will learn:

  • identify the benefits of workplace mentoring for mentees, mentors, and organizations;
  • distinguish between examples of coaching and mentoring relationships;
  • identify what makes mentoring programs successful;
  • distinguish between the four types of mentoring;
  • recognize the advantages of formal mentoring relationships; and
  • identify benefits of informal mentoring relationships.


Contact your Human Resource or Training Office for information on the course availability at your agency.
