Mentoring - My style

  • Set expectations on the role of mentor
  • If the mentee is new to the organization, make him/her welcome; if not, express happiness in working together
  • Structure mentoring plans on a weekly, daily and hourly levels
  • Create a blend of guided and unguided, self-paced and time-based components
  • If you have work other than mentoring, discourage the tendency of the mentees to seek clarifications any time. Allocate time in the middle/end of each day for questions
  • Be open and honest about things that you don't know
  • Follow-up
