Transforming the Workplace
Employee Development is excited to begin to share its mentoring and peer support initiatives for Texas A&M AgriLife Extension. The first step is to provide clarity to the roles and responsibilities of each role and to begin to recruit key stakeholders for each initiative. Please take some time to learn more about what it means to be a PEER, a coach, or a mentor below. We also hope that you consider which role you would be best suited to serve in because when it comes to employee development, we all have a role to play, we all have knowledge and gifts to share, and we all will benefit from a stronger agency.
We hope our PEERs help new employees feel like they matter and belong. Our PEERs will seek to provide a positive and welcoming connection to the agency from day one!
We hope our coaches equip all employees no matter the years of experience with the resources, knowledge, and skills needed to excel. Coaches will seek to increase the competence of our agency employees by providing more timely and specific learning opportunities.
Our mentors address issues of retention, development, and advancement for all employees by offering guidance and a balance of challenge and support. We hope that mentees feel known and experience real growth in a strong mentoring relationship.
