Empower learners with consistent feedback and guidance,
contextualized in the business and woven into the flow of learning

On a macro level, mentoring can also be an efficient way to generate
collective wisdom or crystallize institutional thought.

At NovoEd, mentoring has
been used to generate ideas and innovation in a population at scale,
whether a different approach to performance reviews or a new implementation
of design thinking.

In all these ways, mentoring can be a real strategy for
remote and hybrid learning that actualizes culture and workplace
principles while upskilling and connecting at scale.

This shifts our training programs from event-based to an experience-based approach where participants can immediately apply what they learned, often the same day they learned it.”

Leverage insights from mentoring to evaluate output at scale and its degree of alignment with the business

Mentoring is connected with work product: For example, perhaps you already have identified your success criteria, the desired program outcomes. You can create a consistent rubric according to which all work/learning product (slides, documents, videos) can be evaluated by mentors. This empowers you to tell at a glance if the output across thousands of entries aligns with the core mission and if the program is moving the needle for the business.
