What can a Mentor Do for you?
Can you offer an ear, and not necessarily advice?
Does your schedule permit a mentoring relationship?
Are you willing to share your knowledge, expertise, skills, and time?
Can you motivate the mentee to reach their full potential?
Can you use your personal experience to help your mentee avoid mistakes and learn from good decisions?
Can you guide the mentee to determine his/her right course of action; not preach or dictate?
Do you project a positive, upbeat image? Are you a positive role model?
Can you offer advice – only if asked? Your mentee may want a sounding board to help him/her work out issues and come to their own conclusion.
