Axiom Consulting Partners LLC announced today that WorldatWork, has published its article titled “Developing Women Leaders Through Grassroots Mentorship” in the November 2010 edition of workspan magazine.

”Once again, Axiom is pleased to be releasing an important piece of thought leadership by our colleague Shannon Sullivan in workspan magazine,” said Steve Strelsin, President – Axiom Consulting Partners. “WorldatWork is the preeminent organization for total rewards practitioners and we are pleased that Axiom’s latest article on how to accelerate the development of high-potential leaders has found a place in November’s issue.”

The article features a case study of a women’s mentorship pilot program at a leading global next-generation mobile technology company. The case study offers a practical approach for how organizations can realize the greatest potential from mentoring initiatives while avoiding common pitfalls. Readers will learn about a two-pronged approach (both qualitative and quantitative) to pairing mentors and mentees that adequately accounts for the often overlooked relationship aspect of mentoring. The case study also introduces a framework that mentors and mentees can use to structure their conversations around the various dimensions of personal growth and development. The key learnings from the program - importance of selecting the right mentors and mentees, setting an appropriate foundation upfront, and providing ongoing support to participants in the program – have application beyond women leaders and can be tailored to almost any employee group, regardless of gender or organizational level.
