Senior Organizational Development Specialist

Mary Kay, Inc.

Mary Kay Inc. has been partnering with Menttium since 1997. We initially worked with Menttium to develop female leaders through external mentoring, in an effort to promote more women to senior leadership. Today, we partner with Menttium to develop newly promoted directors, both male and female, through external mentoring, in order to support them in their transition from manager to director. Our mentees are happy with the matches that Menttium makes, and with the quality of mentoring. Just this morning I spoke with a Menttium alumna who did not believe in mentoring prior to her Menttium experience; however, the experience converted her and she is now a strong advocate for the program.

 

In 2006, Menttium helped Mary Kay design and implement a global internal mentoring program. We recently celebrated the tenth launch of the program, which has been wildly successful. Menttium was key in providing expert advice, especially for the matching process and for mentee/mentor orientation. While we manage the program internally, we continue to use Menttium’s materials to support the program.

 

Menttium has deep knowledge on the subject of mentoring. Their experts are always available to answer questions on the topic and to brainstorm solutions to challenges that we encounter.

General Mills, Inc.

General Mills has successfully partnered with Menttium for over ten years. We value this partnership for many reasons, but the most significant value is providing differential development opportunities to our high potential employees.

 

Our partnership with Menttium in the Menttium 100 program is given high praise from both our employees and their managers. We have heard that Menttium has resulted in increased readiness to take on roles with greater complexity, scope, or authority, as well as increased leadership capabilities. Employees personally have told me the value of working with an external mentor is critical, allowing them to have a safe place to talk and a broader network from which to learn from.

 

Menttium makes partnering in developing our employees easy. In all ways, they focus on customer service, going over and above. I appreciate their willingness to provide education and support to our employees going through the Menttium 100 program as well as myself, as I continue to improve our other internal mentoring programs.

 

I appreciate the value Menttium brings to our overall development offerings. I encourage you to explore how Menttium can partner with you in bringing differential development to your employees.
