MORE IDEAS FROM THE ARTICLE

Mentoring requires having a clear idea of how the sessions themselves are to happen. 

Make sure that from the very beginning you communicate to your mentee exactly how all is going to take place: how often, where, how, etc. Get to know the other and use all the means you dispose of in order to help him or her reach the desired goal.

Being a mentor means, above all, having a feeling of accomplishment when your mentee has reached the desired goal. Moreover, having succeeded to establish a great relationship throughout the working sessions can only lead to more joy.

More than giving directions, a mentor is supposed to provide the so-called pieces of supportive advice, which will enable the mentee to make up her or his mind, based on their own beliefs.

When you are a mentor, you do your best to help your mentee to fulfill his or her goal. 

However, sometimes you can not provide the other with everything that is necessary or maybe you two just do not match as working partners. And this is when a line has to be drawn and the truth has to be spoken so people can make the right decision.

Mentoring is, in no way, a synonym for motherhood. Therefore, if you are a mentor, bear in mind that your mentees are not your children. 

You will do a great favor both to yourself and to them, by making sure that they behave responsibly and know their part.

Mentoring has as ultimate goal the fact of making the mentee feel more self-confident and aware that he or she can achieve whatever planned. 

In order for this to happen, it is the mentor's duty to lead the mentee to the right questions, but not to the answers themselves.

A Good Mentee

Having the right mentor or ‘Guru’ in our life can change one's entire trajectory. It’s common to see people labelled as good mentors, but rare for anyone to make themselves into good mentees.

Memorability, or the ability of mentees to derive benefit from mentoring, relies on an open, mutually beneficial partnership.

The terms mentoring and coaching are often mistakenly interchanged. Although they are similar, they are not the same when it comes to approach.

  • Mentoring - long-term relationship focusing on the growth and development of the mentee with the mentor as the source of the wisdom, support, and knowledge.
  • Coaching - short-term relationship focusing on strengthening traits and eliminating behaviors that diminishes one's performance.
