Three ways to get the most from your mentoring experience

1. Keep communications open.

Mentee: Be up front. Let your mentor know what your goals are and what you hope to take away from the program.

Mentor: Help your mentee set realistic expectations. Also, if you know you will be unavailable because of business or personal travel, let them know.

2. Offer support.

Mentee: Remember that your mentor is there for you, but is only a guide.

Mentor: Encourage communication and participation. Help create a solid plan of action.

3. Stay positive!

Mentee: Remember that your mentor is offering feedback and not criticizing.

Mentor: Recognize the work the mentee has done and the progress made.
