"Key Points
  • Mentoring includes several stages: prescriptive, persuasive, collaborative, and confirmative, though these often overlap and are not always clear cut or linear.
  • The mentor and mentee must devote time and energy to the relationship.
  • Listening skills are essential for the mentor and mentee.
  • Each meeting is best having an agenda. The meeting should be scheduled in advance with a plan, a location and time, and a set amount of time set aside.
  • Coaching may be needed for mentees with less experience. Counseling and guidance are important through all stages.
  • Advising is one of the predominant components of the mentoring relationship. The mentee should identify his/her interests, skills, knowledge, and goals. Targeting areas for development, plan creation, indicators of success, and continual reassessment of progress are vital.
  • Mentors should seek to promote the interests of the mentee. Guidance and support may be needed if the mentee feels overwhelmed or experiences difficulty."
