Mentors will support and encourage their mentee to maximise their potential, develop their skills, improve their performance and become the person they want to be.

Role of a Mentor:

•         Be challenging: identify assumptions, offer alternatives

•         Be inspiring, provide vision, encourage and motivate

•         Be a good listener - be open minded, non-judgemental and foster reflection

•         Be supportive and patient

•         Sharing (both personally and professionally)

•         Promote understanding of leadership options and outcomes

•         Recognise potential and encourage mentee to fulfil it

•         Provide guidance through practical help and role modelling

•         Provide information, particularly knowledge based on personal experience (both good and bad)

•         Give positive feedback  and reinforcement, and constructive criticism when appropriate.
