match making for mentoring

In the times of Coursera, iTunesU and other online learning sources there is now also Everwise, identifying the best matches for mentoring on a global basis and providing an affordable integrated platform for talent development.

 

Users can establish development goals — or import them from their company’s HR system after a performance review — and track their progress against them. Assessments — including via the renowned Myers-Briggs indicator and Strengthsfindersprogram – are also incorporated into the platform so users can ostensibly gain a deeper understanding of their own strengths and weaknesses.

 

There is an “experience manager,” whose responsibility it is to help participants identify and prioritize their goals. Thousands of mentors from 70 countries and 130 industries are now volunteering to spend 10 hours over six months helping “thousands” of Everwise protégés. I am myself a mentor and have become a big fan of the approach and the platform. Companies pay a fixed monthly fee per employee.

Elizabeth Schillo, Vice President of Sales at Everwise will talk about talent development in a rapidly changing world at the Hamburg Aviation Conference 8 - 9 February 2017.
