Listener

An effective mentor will be a good listener, and even if they come with a host of expertise and experience (usually the reason they are selected for mentoring to begin with) they can put aside any thoughts they may have to understand where the mentee is coming from.  This is a little different from the role of a teacher or professor, who often will have a set goal of teaching something.  The mentor is really just a guide, and the most effective guides tend to put their own paths aside if necessary to help the mentee on theirs.  The ability of the mentor to be without any preconceived notions will make the mentee more comfortable, and will allow the relationship to move forward.

The fundamental task of the mentor is a liberatory task. It is not to encourage the mentor’s goals and aspirations and dreams to be reproduced in the mentees, the students, but to give rise to the possibility that the students become owners of their own history. This is how I understand the need that teachers have to transcend their merely instructive task and to assume the ethical posture of a mentor who truly believes in the total autonomy, freedom, and development of those he or she mentors.

Paulo Freire, Mentoring the Mentor

Mentoring Perspective1
  • Not a parent who is a mother or father figure
  • A professional counselor or therapist but a caring facilitator
  • Not a flawless person
  • Not a social worker
  • Not a bank
  • Not a playmate or a romantic partner

Key Component of the Mentor/Mentee Relationship

I think that the most effective mentorship relationship are designed at the outside to reflect that both parties involved get something out of the relationship-

Just as it takes 2 hands to clap

Effective mentoring requires a mentee who is willing to participate in such a relationship without straining themselves

From a personal communication January 2012

role of the mentee
Role of the Mentee
  • Often overlooked since they appear to benefit the most from the relationship
  • Most effective mentees seem to be the ones seeking out the relationship
  • Effective mentees seem to be the ones who are able to evaluate the goals in the relationship and manage the relationship within these goals and boundaries

Each party benefits

  • With advice
  • New opportunities
  • Satisfaction of helping others
The most effective relationships have a beginning a middle and a true end and do not compromise the position of either party.
