Mentoring: Basic Definitions
A developmental sharing and helping relationship where one person invests time, know-how, and effort in enhancing another person's growth, knowledge, and skills.
Responding to critical needs in the life of another person in ways that prepare that person for greater performance, productivity, or achievement in the future.
Anyone who has an important, long-lasting, beneficial, life or style-enhancing effect on another person, generally as result of personal one-on-one contact (regardless of the media used)
Anyone who, through his/her personal knowledge, insight, perspective or wisdom, is helpful to another person in a relationship that goes beyond doing one's duty or fulfilling one's obligations
- A person being mentored by another person or persons; especially one who makes an effort to internalize and use effectively the knowledge, skills, insights, perspective, or wisdom offered by the mentor(s)
- A recipient of a mentor's help; especially a person who seeks out such help and uses it appropriately for developmental purposes whenever needed
- One of the most important goals of the mentoring relationship is that a mentee might, in time, be able to mentor other people – even being both mentor and mentee at the same time – in different relationships, for different areas of learning.
