The Mentoring Relationship
The ideal mentoring relationship is one that exceeds fact-finding and delves into personal knowledge and experience. In many cases, young professionals have certain career goals, but do not have the firsthand experience or insight on what to expect or how to achieve their goals. Mentors are invaluable resources in helping guide and advise the protégés based upon their experiences. A partnership between mentor and protégé must be developed in order to promote a good mentor relationship; the more committed the relationship, the more satisfaction is gained by all participants.
The program is designed to be successful with active participants. The goal of this program is to foster a meaningful relationship between the mentor and protégés that will last beyond the timeline of this program. The Mentorship Program runs on a calendar year.
