Become a Mentor

Why Consider Becoming a Mentor or Mentee?

What Is Mentoring?

Mentoring involves a more experienced individual, the mentor, providing guidance to a mentee. One thing mentoring should not be about is obtaining a first or next job. A mentoring partnership involves developing trust, investing feelings and energy and sometimes taking risks by challenging a partner’s self-image. If a mentor feels valued only for the connections he possesses or the doors she can open the relationship probably will never develop.

Why Consider Becoming a Mentor?

A mentor is an individual, usually older, always more experienced, who helps and guides another individual’s development. There are many reasons for becoming a mentor including learning about yourself, becoming energized through a fresh personal or professional perspective and deriving satisfaction for furthering another’s career development. The return on mentoring efforts may also include growing an organization’s management talent and fine-tuning your leadership skills in a one-on-one situation.

Why Consider Becoming a Mentee

Mentee is the name given to the person who receives guidance from the mentor. That guidance may take many forms. For example, a mentee may want to work on building self-confidence, developing professional and winning behaviors or sharpening critical thinking skills and knowledge. People can become mentees at almost any age. A young manager can receive valuable guidance from experienced mid-career executives, while the mid-careerist may benefit from a mentor who is at the C-suite level. Senior executives ready to move up from a small or mid-size organization may benefit from the counsel of a CEO or COO whose career already includes leading larger, more complex firms.
