Part VI: Summary > Some Points to Remember

Chapter 56. Some Points to Remember

Mentoring tends to be most productive when it operates as an adult-to-adult partnership.

The partnership is voluntary on both sides—even in formal, organization-sponsored programs. To be effective, both partners must be committed to it and willing to do their part.

Mentees have a responsibility to manage their own development and career. They need to study and practice the skills that will foster a good mentoring relationship.

Being mentored is not a training program and not an entitlement. Mentoring is the act of going above and beyond the ordinary to produce powerful, positive change in another person.

Either party is entitled to terminate the relationship at any time, with or without giving a reason. But when effective partnerships have resulted in achieving the intended goals, gratitude and celebration are in order!

Remember: Mentors Help—Mentees Do!
