In its recent article by McKinsey & Company, global management consulting firm, on The Power of People Analytics discussed how it developed an approach to retention. Their analysis revealed that a lack of mentoring and coaching and of “affiliation” with people who have similar interests were actually top of list of key factors. Specifically, “flight risk” across the firm fell by 20 to 40 percent when coaching and mentoring were deemed satisfying.

Beyond assigning mentors, highly effective programs use consistent tools and processes to ensure a positive experience for the protégés. The workbooks and online development programs are companions to the winner of Best Business Reference Book in the 2012 International Book Awards and are ideal for those who wish to increase their effectiveness. They provide a strong foundation for mentoring and leadership development programs.
