Personal and Professional Development

 

 

If you are interested in becoming a mentor, check yourself against this list:

Are you interested in helping others to succeed - even if they may surpass you in achievement?
Are you reliable, honest, and trustworthy to keep things confidential?
Are you capable of active listening - not interrupting, picking up important cues from what someone says, able to reflect back the relevant issues and check understanding, minimising assumptions and prejudices?
Are you empathetic - can you convey understanding of their experience without saying ‘yes me too’ and launching into anecdotes of your own?
Are you able to question someone sensitively but empoweringly to help them explore their own issues?
Can you pass on your knowledge and expertise clearly, encouragingly and helpfully?
