To make the most of your mentoring relationship, carefully consider a few things.
Firstly, consider what it is you want from the relationship. Knowing what you want from the relationship will help you see the value in it and will also provide clarity about the roles and expectations. Know your strengths and weaknesses so that you know exactly what areas you want to grow and develop. This will also help you narrow down what advice you’re looking for.
