Chapter 29. Resolve Differences > Working Out Problems

Working Out Problems

As in any close relationship, it is not surprising that occasional difficulties arise between mentor and mentee. It is helpful for a mentee to remember that the mentor is there to help. That doesn’t mean that a mentor will solve problems for you, nor has to single-handedly handle differences that develop between you. The mentor doesn’t have to invoke the no-fault divorce provision of the contract to cease mentoring. He or she only has to be less helpful than before (all the way to zero).

If problems are going to be resolved successfully, the outcome has to be a win-win one. This leaves both partners feeling good about the outcome and neither having an unfair edge over the other.
