Characteristics of Excellent Mentors

Think about the traits and the questions, so that you can assess your own mentoring skills.

  • Good listener/sounding board
  • Knowledgeable
  • Nonjudgmental
  • Able to give constructive feedback
  • Honest and candid
  • Able to network and find resources
  • Successful in career
  • Willing/able to devote time to developing others
  • Eager to learn

Do a self-assessment and know what you are offering to your mentee and what you expect of yourself.

  • What are my strengths as a mentor?
  • What are my challenges as a mentor?
  • In what ways can I compensate for my mentoring weaknesses (e.g., books, training, advice from good role model)?
