Qualities of a Successful Mentee

19th October 2016 by Become Better

For a mentoring relationship to flourish a mentee should exhibit a number of qualities.

Commitment is imperative. A mentee needs to be motivated to stick at the mentoring relationship for long enough to produce the desired affects. This includes working between sessions to progress towards achieving goals and targets.

Flexibility is another key quality. A mentee should be prepared to listen and perhaps even alter the way they are doing things. Being able to schedule meetings around two people's busy lives is also a important.

Finally, openness is absolutely essential. A mentee must be able to speak about their goals, ideas and fears even if they feel uncomfortable doing so. By discussing weaknesses as well as strengths, a mentee can hope to improve and grow.
