Mentoring is about learning and being open to new ideas, plans, and processes. This information is here to empower you in your mentoring relationships. Take advantage of the Mentor and Mentee Manuals' concrete advice and guidelines.

  • S.T.E.P. 1:1 mentoring program participants. The manuals are designed to complement the 6-month online mentoring program.
  • Independent mentors and mentees. The Mentor and Mentee manuals give you a road map for managing your mentoring relationship, even if you are not a S.T.E.P. 1:1 mentoring program participant.

"Individuals should have more than one mentor in our fast-changing world including a senior mentor within their organization, peer mentors, and mentors outside the organization." Source: Academy of Management Review, 2001
