A survey of what mentoring and coaching is happening in NZ organisations was carried out by the New Zealand Mentoring Centre Ltd (NZMC) from June 2006 - April 2007. There were 135 respondents from organisations across a range of sectors: private (46%), public (37%) and not-for-profit (17%). Respondents also reported that there were a range of mentoring types in their organisations with the majority being one-to-one (63%), 20% peer or group mentoring and the balance programme mentoring.
Australian health-care provider Queensland Health is rolling out the New Zealand Mentoring Centre training course The Power of Peer Supervision to 2000 employees in 2 districts over 5 years.
In June New Zealand Mentoring Centre directors Aly McNicoll and Wendy Baker travelled the USA to present a workshop at the ASTD 2008 International Conference in San Diego on 'The Power of Peer Mentoring Groups - tools for learning in the connected organisation'.
This conference attracted 12,000 delegates, and as workshop leaders they are standing alongside Ken Blanchard, Marshall Goldsmith and a host of other leadership legends.
