In antiquity the purpose of a mentor is to take all the experience that they’ve accumulated throughout their career and life and transfer it to their mentee for their benefit.
Nowaday, rather than learning through trial and error, a mentor is a person you can look to for direction and a role model to imitate. A mentor is someone who helps you grow your skills, make better decisions, and gain new perspectives on your life and career. As a mentee, your mentor will leverage their experience to give you guidance on your career or life now and in the future.
Types of mentoring
If you are looking for a Mentor, you need to determine what type of mentoring works best for you based on your career goals.
Here are the three major types of mentoring:
This is the most traditional type of Mentoring. Typically, a Mentor is a more experienced individual arranged to assist a less experienced or younger Mentee.
This type of mentoring involves regular face-to-face meetings between one mentor and one mentee. Usually, a senior-level individual mentors a junior individual with complete focus on the mentee’s desired results and wants. This includes personality and skills development, work-life balance problems, or career progress in general.
Typically, this mentoring is done via private mentoring sessions with the least possible distractions. This is beneficial for both the mentor and mentee. The mentors can give dedicated time and focus all the energy on a single mentee, while it also provides the mentee with a high level of responsibility and accountability.
In this model, one or several Mentors work with a group of Mentees. Schools and youth training programs often adopt this model because there may not be enough time or resources to arrange a separate Mentor for each Mentee.
Group mentoring allows sharing of different ideas among the program members and provides unique advice to the mentees. Group members feel confident about speaking up, exposing their vulnerabilities to colleagues, and suggesting ideas without fear of judgment and rebuke.
Group mentoring creates a sense of togetherness while also encouraging people to take a chance.
Group mentoring has the following benefits:
- Mentees gain insights from the mentor as well as from their peers.
- Sharing career dreams and ambitions generates a sense of belonging and mutual trust.
- It develops diversity of thinking, practice, and understanding.
- Participants become acquainted with co-learning environments.
- Participants also learn to help others and take responsibility for self-learning too.
Participants in this model belong to the same role or department, or have shared experiences in their professional and personal lives. These peers come together to support each other. This form of Mentoring can take place as a group or one-on-one Mentoring.
Beside that, with the advancement of technology and the internet, it is no longer necessary for a Mentoring service to take place in person. That is E-Mentoring. Through online software or even Email, Mentees of this type can connect with each other online without worrying about losing personal contact.
