Mentoring

“Mentoring is a brain to pick, an ear to listen and a push in the right directions.”
John Crosby

What is a Mentor?
A mentor is a trusted counselor who helps shape another individual’s development. The mentor’s role is to guide, give advice, support and encourage the mentee based on greater experience.

Mentoring Relationship

  • Mentoring is a developmental partnership where one person shares knowledge, skills, information and perspective to foster the personal growth of someone else.
  • Mentoring also provides a highly confidential way to share and explore problems, difficulties and strategies

The Foundation of Productive Mentoring

  • A trusted connection between the mentor and mentee
  • A genuine desire and commitment by the mentor to see the mentee succeed.
  • The mentee being fully engaged and understanding that the key to professional success is “Commitment to Self-Development.”
