Establish Clear Timelines, Milestones, and Ground Rules for Mentorships



According to APQC’s research on workplace mentoring, mentoring pairs should have clear learning objectives and timelines for their interactions, including milestones at which to assess progress and make any needed alterations. Mentorship duration varies widely by program and business purpose, but a defined endpoint helps focus relationships and ensure they don’t peter out before mentees fulfill their learning objectives.
