Training Brief

A mentor teaches, advises, or counsels the mentee, and provides training about decisions, problems, and career-related situations. A mentee might also ask the mentor to help set performance, educational, or even personal goals, such as overcoming a personal problem that affects work performance.

The mentor and mentee freely choose to form the mentoring relationship and the responsibilities that come with their respective roles. Mentoring is not supervising, managing, or sponsoring an employee. Mentoring is an intentional and formal relationship in which both individuals’ goal is to develop the mentee.  Harnessing mentoring relationship within an organization helps promote personal effectiveness, professional and personal development initiatives.
