Mentoring … Basic Definitions

Mentoring Process ... 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 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 their 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.
