The relationship between the mentor and the mentee could be an informal or formal one. The parties decide on this. It is better to keep it formal; after all, the mentor is not necessarily your friend.
Usually, the mentor and mentee have an agreed place where they meet and the time for that meeting to discuss issues and make plans to review and resolve them.
The mentor as the more experienced person and is willing and capable of passing on the benefit of all the experience that they have gained. In addition to telling the mentee what to do in specific circumstances, the mentor’s role is to:
Listen and be supportive while providing non-judgemental support.They also provide guidance while clarifying the goals of the mentee.The mentor helps the mentee to develop action plans andServe as an accountability partner for the mentee.
It is the mentee’s role to identify skills, knowledge and goals that they want to accomplish. The mentee also has to give the mentor feedback about what has been learnt and achieved. To get the best out of a mentor the mentee has to have clear and defined goals.
