The responsibility for a good mentor/protégé relationship is both with the mentor and the protégé. Mentoring is a power-free, mutually beneficial learning situation where the mentor provides advice, shares knowledge and experiences, and teaches using a low pressure, self-discover approach. By teaching using an adult-learning model instead of a teacher-to-student model, mentors are able to willingly question their own methods for self-discovery and freely share their own experience and skills with their protégé. Strong mentors breed strong protégés to carry on the tradition of mentorship to others. A strong formal mentoring program strives for consistency, compatibility, support, and accountability. The training course for protégés ensures that any mentorship program is successful and rewarding by teaching the protégé what to look for in a mentor, build a strong relationship, and put the mentor’s knowledge to work. As skilled, educated, and motivated as you are, learning from someone who knows the ins and outs of your organization can be a powerful business asset. You have to be willing to work hard and do your part. This training will help you create and maintain a mutually rewarding mentor/mentee relationship.

Effective mentorship behaviors also include addressing diversity factors and being mindful of equity in the mentoring relationship. Elevate’s 3-part Effective Mentorship symposium harnesses the best of relationship science to ensure that mentors have the tools to develop strong relationships and provides mentees the strategies and techniques to take responsibility for cultivating an effective mentoring relationship for everyone.
