MENTORING IN A MINUTE: Tips to enrich any mentoring relationship!
Mentees -don't be afraid to ask for what you want! The most effective mentoring relationships occur when you are proactive and provide the momentum for the work you're doing with your mentor. Just remember to be considerate of your mentor's time.
Mentors - be available, physically & mentally, for your mentee. If time demands get to be too much, have a constructive conversation to revisit agreed upon meeting parameters.
