Mentoring is a gift that is shared. It is a relationship that enables purposeful conversation. The conversation assists the mentoree to reflect on their own experience, make informed decisions and act upon the ideas that are generated.
The purpose of mentoring is development. It is about learning not teaching and both mentors and those mentored grow from the experience.
In mentoring, people develop a synergetic relationship through a conversation that enables them to set and achieve goals, make decisions and solve problems. Any person who has the skill to facilitate the mentoring process may be a mentor.Mentoring is enriching and satisfying for both partners.
