This page is intended to provide mentors with helpful resources to seek, find and conduct a successful mentoring engagement. Browse our resources and and feel free to suggest others you may find on your own.
Becoming a Mentor
Please refer to the minimum requirements for being a mentor before signing up.
- We strongly recommend you view the Lynda.com course on mentoring. This short course (14 minutes) steps through the basic skills and mindset of a good mentor. It is a good introduction or a refresher to mentoring and provides enough detail for further exploration on your own (see more resources below).
- Please review the mentoring rights and responsibilities. Prepare to discuss with your mentee as a first step toward setting expectations and tone for your engagement.
Engaging with Mentee
The first step is to set the tone, expectations and goals for future sessions. We recommend you start with a review of the Mentoring Rights and Responsibilities and follow up with a goals’ setting exercise. These two elements form the platform upon which you can establish and evaluate your direction and progress.
After Step 1
Once you have spent some time laying the groundwork and ensuring you both have a common understanding of your direction, you are ready to tackle your goals. We recommend a mid-point check-in to track progress and check on if your direction needs to be adjusted.
