Developing Mentors
The Number #1 issue we find in working with organizations who truly want to develop and sustain a mentoring culture, but that don’t see it coming together, is simple.

Not enough mentors.

It’s a supply and demand dilemma. Each company seems to have scads of mentees willing to step us as learners but there are only a handful of mentors willing to invest and commit. Or worse, there are quite a few who have been “assigned” by their leaders as…well…a “must-do” or favor. Not a good start.

How does The MentorShift Group help? We do the following:

  • Coach on positive and effective ways to invite mentors in
  • Clearly outline benefits of mentoring to individual and organizations
  • Communicate with mentor (and mentee) as they start their relationships and along the way to ensure success. This will make them want to mentor again.
  • Provide them a reliable process that make the journey profitable and enjoyable for mentor and mentee and yield an impressive ROI for the organization


Lori Bachman created The MentorShift Group to equip mentors and mentees with a practical and powerful mentoring system. The system is designed to equip those who use it to, not only flourish in their own mentoring relationships, but to be able to transfer its success to others as well.
