MENTORING IN A MINUTE: Tips to enrich any mentoring relationship!
Even the best mentoring relationships can hit rough patches. When this happens, both mentor and mentee are responsible for making sure that the situation is dealt with in a timely manner. Ignoring an uncomfortable situation can lead to resentment and a total breakdown in the partnership. Take the time to have a respectful and thoughtful conversation about the problem, acknowledge the validity of each other’s feelings and agree on how to move forward.
