Tip #2

Identify your culture goals. Put them in writing.

Tip #3

Decide at once how the mentoring bond will work - frequency and type of contact.

Tip #4

Commit the time. Don't give up if the chemistry doesn't feel right at the first meeting. Meet a bare minimum of once per month. Touch base evenly - by e-mail, phone, in person.

Tip #5

Take time to build trust and communication. Get to know each other on a own level. Converse your backgrounds, interests, career histories, and perspectives of your organizations.

Tip #6

Keep confidences. Nonentity kills trust in a mentoring affiliation more rapidly than a break of confidence.

Be delicate to cultural and gender differences. Do a barely homework. And listen.

Tip #8

Understand and plan for the phases of a mentoring relationship. Build in time for evaluation and closure.

Tip #9

This is about learning, whether you're a protg or a mentor. Keep a journal.

Tip #10

You don't need a free guide who you keep during your career. What you need is a mind-set that allows you to learn from those about you, no be relevant who they are. To get ahead, conceive your own multitalented "board of advisors. "
