The Mentorship Program

The best part is to understand what mentorship is. If you search online, you will get a variety of options, but I have come up with a guide on the mentor-mentee responsibilities.


What is the role of a mentor?

Advisor and coach: provide advice, guidance, and feedback; share their experience and expertise as appropriate; act as a sounding board for ideas and action plans

Champion and cheerleader: Offer encouragement and support to try new things; help mentees move out their comfort zones; celebrate successes; help mentees understand when things do not go as planned.

Resource and recommendations: Identify resources that will help mentees with personal development and growth, such as recommending books, workshops, or other learning tools; encourage mentees to join networking organizations or introduce them to new contacts

Devil’s advocate and “truth-sayer”: Provide the tough feedback that mentees need to hear in order to move forward; push mentees to take risks when appropriate; help mentees consider and weigh potential consequences of decisions and actions to avoid the pitfalls and predictable surprises that may occur.

Meanwhile, the mentees have their own responsibilities, including:
  • Identifying initial learning goals and measures of success for the mentoring relationship ICT Audit

  • Be open to and seek feedback

  • Take an active role in their own learning and help drive the process

  • Schedule and attend mentor conversations

  • Follow through on commitments and take informed risks as they try new options and behaviors in support of career and development goals.
