Mentoring Toolkit

This toolkit is designed to assist mentors and mentees as they establish and maintain a productive mentoring relationship. It is designed to meet the following expectations of a mentoring relationship:

Understand the qualities that lead to success.

  • What makes a great mentor?
  • What are my skills and needs?

Clarify roles and responsibilities.

  • What does my mentor or mentee expect of me?
  • Are the roles clear and responsibilities reasonable?

Set realistic goals and develop a plan.

  • Is my Individual Development Plan “SMART?”
  • Have we created an achievable plan and timeline?

Develop a schedule for meetings and have an agenda.

  • Is communication in person, by email or phone?
  • Does each meeting have an agenda?

Establish evaluation and feedback plans.

Consider the personal and professional identities of mentor and mentee.
