Skills for Successful Mentoring: Competencies of Outstanding Mentors and Mentees – by L. Phillips-Jones (2003) This short booklet explains key competencies that are needed in a well-functioning mentorship. It also contains a self-evaluation for both mentors and mentees entitled “My Mentoring Skills”.
This document gives a good example of communicating guidelines about a formal mentoring program in an organisation. This concise, 4-page document explains clearly to mentor, mentee and supervisor what their roles entail and what the usual procedures are that ensure the smooth running of the program. Thank you to SIL SOA for sharing their guidelines to inspire other teams, too.
