Putting leaders in charge of mentoring potential candidates’ serves two purposes: it gets the mentor involved in the future of the company, and it gives the mentee an experienced employee to get advice from. This is also a great method for passing on information. If an agency’s CEO/CFO abruptly leaves, for example, valuable information about operations that was shared or documented isn’t lost.
By having this mentoring program in place, you significantly decrease the chances of losing information and you increase the culture of support and team spirit. This culture of promoting from within and mentoring star players will highlight your efforts to share information, goals, and objectives and provide training for the new leaders.
