At its core, mentoring is about providing three Ss – a safe pair of ears, a sounding board, and a source of possible solutions. It can be a powerful source of support, especially for those going through a time of transition or change in their professional lives.
How can you ensure that as a mentor you are providing the best possible support for your mentee? And as a mentee, how best can you ensure that you will get the most out of the relationship? Preparation, Communication and Planning are key strategies for success in professional or workplace mentoring.
