Evaluation of Business Needs

Leaf Mentoring conducts a preliminary evaluation of the company’s strengths and needs. The comprehensive assessment involves gathering data from all members of the company.


Creating Buy In

Leaf Mentoring communicates the need for and efficacy of mentoring interventions to all stakeholders.


Training a Mentoring Coordinator

In order to make the mentoring program self-sustaining, Leaf Mentoring trains a member of the staff to take the lead in training and coordinating all future mentoring programs. Leaf Mentoring assists in the identification of this staff member.


Guiding Initial Mentor and Mentee Selection and Matching

Together with the Mentoring Coordinator, Leaf Mentoring collaborates with executive leaders to identify mentors and mentees. After the initial mentor training has taken place, Leaf Mentoring conducts the matching process between mentors and mentees.


Mentor Training

Leaf Mentoring presents the initial training for the first group of mentors and provides the necessary instruction and materials for the company’s selected mentoring coordinator to run all future trainings.

Any effective program can and should be measured to demonstrate its effectiveness. Leaf Mentoring ensures companies establish accurate data collection processes.


Ongoing Supervision

To ensure that your mentoring initiative is successful and sustainable, Leaf Mentoring provides two years of supervision after the initial visit. This ongoing support, supervision and guidance is one of the many factors that sets Dr. Kranzler’s interventions apart and ensures the success and growth of your mentoring program.
