Mentorship is a learning relationship between two or more people, and typically follows four phases:
- Preparing: the discovery phase, when you find out if mentorship is right for you.
- Negotiating: the business phase, when you help your mentee set learning goals.
- Enabling growth: the work phase, when you support and provide feedback to your mentee.
- Coming to closure: the assessment stage, where you assess the value of your mentoring relationship and move forward.
