There are three levels of mentoring:

  • The Maintenance Phase.

Various tools and techniques that apply to that phase have to be implemented. While tools and techniques can be used for each of these, there are tools and techniques that are common to all three.

Present-day mentoring has outgrown the traditional model, in which the mentor would select the mentee and finish the mentoring. This approach was rather one-sided, in that it was more of a hand down, and little was left to the mentee to contribute.

Workplace-Conflict-Resolution-702x246

Improved productivity results from the ability to synchronize one’s personal work style with the culture of the workgroup and the organization. Mentoring a team’s members is an integral part of achieving this objective. While mentoring is an important aspect of improved productivity; it is in mentoring the difficult people, and those who do not see eye-to-eye with the mentor, that the challenge of mentoring lies. Even if the mentor and the mentee do not agree on major areas; it is important and imperative to mentor them in the interest of the organization and in the interest of the mentor and the mentee.

Managers and mentors should cultivate the ability to understand how to mentor such difficult people. Mentoring the employees who are not on the same page as the mentor in terms of the work or the organization’s goals calls for bringing in a different kind of thinking. Such mentors have to adapt the principles of emotional intelligence to a new level. They need to have a different level of self-awareness and sensitivity to others.

While evolving and advancing technologies are expected to constitute one major aspect of this change; the bigger change is going to be witnessed in the area of demographics at the workplace.

In the next few years, the American workplace is expected to see over 80 million Millennials. Such a huge infusion of a new generation in such a short span of time has rarely been witnessed in the corporate history of America. This will bring about a huge and drastic shift in the work culture, ethics, working conditions, and everything else that we associate with the workplace.

Understanding the Millennials

What does this mean for managers? Simple: they have to roll up their sleeves and get ready for understanding, receiving and accepting the new generation. This starts with an understanding of how the millennial workforce is different from the rest. Although they have been entering the workplace in stages from about a decade or so; the spurt in their numbers is a big factor. This is what should gear up the management in organizations to take the steps to make the best out of them.

Millennials are those workers who were born roughly in the decade beginning in 1983. The generation that was born almost simultaneously with the explosion of technologies; the Millennials are expected to be different in every way. The familiarity with technology and the ease of its application is a very distinct trait. They are also expected to have lesser attention span, are more prone to using the social media, are likely to be more tolerant of a diverse workforce, and are likely to be less loyal to their employers.
