Mentoring is a collaborative learning relationship between individuals who share mutual responsibility and accountability for helping the mentee work toward the fulfillment of clear and mutually defined learning goals. Mentoring is used to assist individuals at specific stages of development or transition and lasts for a sustained but defined period of time. The mentoring relationship provides a developmental opportunity for both parties and can thus be of mutual benefit.
This definition perceives your mentor's role as one of facilitating, supporting and developing. Because mentoring relationships are between equals: a mentor should have no supervisory responsibility or authority over a mentee. This definition also emphasizes that the benefits of the mentoring relationship are mutual. Mentoring is a journey mentors and mentees embark on together. Throughout this journey, two individuals help each other arrive at a common destination called professional excellence.
