Being a Management Mentor

Is mentoring right for you? What benefits should I expect? Why would I want to be a mentor? These are just a few of the questions we all face during our careers. Surely you have provided advice to others at times; and without a doubt you are a trusted advisor to someone. But mentoring is a well-defined process that benefits both the mentor and mentee when approached correctly. Sure it takes time, commitment, and preparation – but the rewards associated with a successful relationship are countless.

Agreeing to be a mentor should not be taken lightly. Individuals will trust your advice based on your experience, role, responsibilities, and professional attitude. To a certain extent you will be accepting the responsibility to help them maximize their potential, develop their skills, and improve their performance.
