TIPS FOR ESTABLISHING A POSITIVE MENTORING
RELATIONSHIP - And KEEPING IT THAT WAY!
youíve made the commitment to be a mentor you want to make sure that the
relationship works. Here are some
tips for getting off on the right foot and keeping it that way.
: To begin
establishing a mentoring relationship, you may want to give your mentee some
information about yourself, such as:
pairs who maintain regular contact do the best. Not every contact needs to be
lengthy. Consistency of contact is most important.
So, decide on a schedule and then make it a top priority to stick to it.
Try to set aside a specific time to at least touch base each week.
Schedule lengthier blocks of time less often for planned activities.
Talk with your mentee about what he or she hopes to get out of the
relationship. Be realistic about
your time as you begin to set goals. You
may want to communicate with your mentee about your busy schedule, any times you
will be out of town, and when you will have limited access to email.
Plan Fun Activities
that Help you Bond: Some Examples
As You Go: If
you have set some goals together, is there any progress being made towards
reaching them? If not, what needs to change?
Are you meeting often enough or too much? Are activities fun and rewarding?
flexible. If things need to change,
change them. Donít take it
personally if the mentoring partnership isnít perfect right away.
Just keep communication open and keep working until you find a blend of
activities and work that meets the needs of both the mentee and mentor.
And most of all - Have fun and learn from each other!
