Find mentors for people in your team to help them be successful. You can’t be their mentor for all of their needs.
Understand what each person is looking for. Example areas of growth include:
- Technical growth
- Ability to influence people
- Ability to successfully work on large projects
- General career growth and management
Use your network in the company to find a good mentor that can help with the specific areas of growth. Agree with the mentor on the parameters of the mentorship (duration, areas of focus, commitment, etc).
Set expectations with the mentor and the mentee independently, make sure they are aligned and then connect them.
Periodically check in both of them on how the relationship is progressing and evaluate its usefulness.
