Mentoring for Emerging Leaders and New Hire Managers

We have enjoyed partnering with eMentorConnect to utilize their on-line mentoring program to deliver leadership learnings for our emerging leaders program and for new managers. The eMentorconnect team was instrumental in helping us design and implement the platform to ensure consistent participation of our leaders, while ensuring everyone understood how to get the most of their mentoring tool. Their Client Success Team made themselves readily available to fully train our mentors through hands-on webinars and to educate our mentees on how to get the most out of their platform. The flexibility of their cloud-based platform allowed us to customize the content and look and feel of the landing site so our participants felt confident using the tool to elevate their leadership development. The eMentorConnect team consistently reached out to me regarding updates, utilization, and effectiveness to ensure the needs of my programs were being met. The eMentorConnect team brings a wealth of mentoring and leadership knowledge. This program has been an integral part of our management development for the last several years and is key to pulling through live and virtual leadership development content.

Pros

The program was easy to customize to our needs. It is intuitive for the team to use, and has communication benchmarks in place to notify the mentors and mentees to follow up on conversations.

Cons

It's been a solid program, with great customer support.

Response from Chronus

We work hard to keep our tool intuitive - our mentors and mentees are busy and don't have time to learn a new tool every time they participate in a program. Our participants always remark on how easy it is to navigate our tool, and work with their partners. Happy mentoring!

The people and support structure at Chronus are excellent. The tool and system continues to provide new functionality and features, which is great. We are able to tailor the program and tracks to our particular interests beyond, but related to, mentoring.

Pros

The most substantive value in mentoring (or coaching) can be found in the dynamics of the relationship. As such, the most labor intensive, but critical step, is creating this relationship. The Matching Algorithm and the flexibility to tailor the weighting of the various criteria is highly effective in guiding the participants to the relationship that would be most suitable. The assumption, of course, is that people complete their profiles honestly and not how "they imagine others would want them to answer."

Cons

Organizational elements. We would like the capability for alphabetical sorting in all areas/functions, we would like the system to retain the mentoring ranking preference once submitted (for ease of reference) by the mentee, we would like an archive functionality for surveys of previous time periods, we would like more functionality for attaining data segments from the Executive Dashboard (aka survey and data from a single track rather than all licensed users).

Response from Chronus

CJ, we're glad to hear the configurability of the matching process is meeting your criteria for successful mentoring. Thank you for highlighting the areas you see for continued optimization, and your CSM is working to elevate these desired adjustments.

Circles Functionality Review

Customer service, implementation, and customer success manager POC's were top notch. My overall experience with the circle functionality itself is just that it doesn't have a lot of functions that encourage participating.

Pros

I really like the idea behind the circles functionality, it is a standalone place that offers alike-minded group of people to come together for discussions

Cons

It feels as though it's just another slack channel, or Facebook page. You have discussion boards, but there isn't a lot of other stuff behind that one piece of functionality that encourages others to continue to be active on the site.

Response from Chronus

Bo, we're glad to hear you're using circles in your mentorship programs. Thank you for your feedback. We're always looking to improve upon our circles functionality so your input is really helpful. We will pass it along to our product team.

We have been able to scale using Chronus and match thousands of students to mentors each academic year. The system makes it easy to set-up the mentoring connection plan ahead of time, communicate with participants regularly, survey participants and collect event rsvps. Chronus has been an exceptional partner and we would not have been able to grow our program without them.

Pros

-Ease of use, templates, mentoring connection plan and emails available to use to guide mentoring for participants
-Easy to communicate with participants
-Has multiple ways for students to request a mentor, admin match and recommend mentors to students
-Open to feedback and updating product in timely manner
-Customer support is a great resources to offer best practices and keep up on mentoring trends

Cons

Need better admin permission levels
Search features could be improved
Email system could be improved to more easily track emails/messaging to determine effectiveness

The team at eMentorConnect was professional from the start! True partners in every way. From the planning stages through implementation, live classroom and virtual kick-off session, support through the structured program and at the closing call for the 6-month programs...they were there every step of the way with guidance and support. I partnered with the eMentor Connect for multiple programs ranging from a dedicated private mentoring program for a Women In Leadership group that included 28 pairings in year 1 and grew to over 35 pairings in year two and then grew further to a global offering supporting a global bio-pharmaceutical organization.

Pros

The matching capability is absolutely wonderful! The system itself is easy to use and has so much functionality- it's all inclusive. This platform fits all needs- if small or large capacity of participants, this software can manage it.

Cons

n/a. There are always new ideas on how to make the platform better; and the eMentorConnect team is open to hearing ideas and implementing.

Response from Chronus

A strong relationship with our clients is a top priority for us, and this program is a great example of how investing in the partnership can impact the success of the participants. Happy mentoring!
