"We know it's true that mentorship is the way that we share learning and culture and build leadership capacity. So let's get there faster. And this is a tool that I've seen in action that allows us to be agnostic to geography, be indiscriminate to time, and to force ourselves to put a series of criteria on the table that we're going to hold ourselves to because we know that the things we've been doing forever are not working to get us to where we need to get to."

Take your mentorship program from burdensome to best in class

"The modern approach to mentoring is leveraging technology. Oftentimes mentoring programs are pen to paper, or Excel files - it's a manual process. With Ten Thousand Coffees' smart algorithms and data matching we have an opportunity to capitalize in a really meaningful way, and embed this in our wider talent management systems. We're able to track progress and success."
