Experiences come at a cost, and mentoring saves us that cost in actual monetary value and experiential loss. Growing leadership expertise in a short period of time within an organization is a continual challenge. The speed of projects and the need for innovation has increased so that we are shoving people into positions of management and leadership in an ever-increasing pace. Mentoring is one of the most cost-effective and efficient tools an organization has for the development of its employees. There is a wealth of knowledge and talent within an organization and the challenge is to “tap into” that knowledge and make it available to other individuals that need it.
