|Assessment Brief (All activities should be completed)||Assessment Criteria|
You have been asked by an organisation which has recently diversified its business, to help with the implementation of a coaching and mentoring programme. You have been asked to provide a briefing paper to the executive team on current thinking around coaching and mentoring and some early ideas on how you might support them with implementing a robust programme of coaching and mentoring that meets their current and changing business needs.
You have met with the HR department to assess the situation and have discovered that there is no formal coaching and mentoring programme per se. Any coaching and mentoring that does occur is ad hoc. There are no qualified coaches and mentors in the organisation and line managers generally don’t see it as their role. There is a willingness to formalise coaching and mentoring in the organisation but uncertainty about how to go about it. Performance reviews in the organisation have identified the need for employees to develop better customer care and IT skills as a priority.
The executive team have requested a briefing paper as the basis for an initial discussion. In your brief you should include:
