Resources for Mentors

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

Step 1

Mentees will be requested to complete two forms, Career Mapping and Goal Setting. Please expect to review both as a starting point. The intention is to smooth the initial meetings and create a path to follow (or not) as things progress in your engagement.

After Step 1

After you have reviewed the rights and responsibilities, the goal setting and career mapping forms, the future is yours to command! (but do it with your mentee, not to them!)
