OBJECTIVE

The purpose of the mentoring relationship is to promote the mentee's professional growth. Mentors assure that interactions with mentees comply with the highest ethical standards.

KEY CHARACTERISTICS OF A SUCCESSFUL MENTOR

• Value the mentee as a person
• Develop mutual trust and respect
• Maintain confidentiality
• Listen both to what is being said and how it is being said
• Help the mentee solve their own problem, rather than give direction
• Focus on the mentee's development, and resist the urge to produce a clone
