Gary asks: How do I make my program a success?

Answer:  Thoroughly pre-plan your program

Most obstacles to success can be identified and avoided with some forethought.

Define “success” in terms of specific outcomes and develop a detailed plan to achieve them,  Identify potential problem areas and determine how to prevent or deal with them.  

Decide what, how and when actions will be taken.  Determine the resources (money, information, knowledge, skills and people) required.  If you lack expertise, get specialist assistance.  You may want to read my article: “Seven Fatal Flaws of Mentoring Programs and How to Avoid Them”.  It’s available free.  Just email requesting “Free 7″ and I’ll send it to you – support@mentoring-works.com.
