  • Values:
    • Personal values influence how mentors approach their role and guide their interactions with mentees. If these values align with those of the mentee and the organization, the mentoring relationship is likely to be more successful.
    • A mentor’s values can influence their advice and guidance. For example, mentors who highly value independence might encourage mentees to make decisions autonomously.
    • If a mentor’s values conflict with those of the mentee or the organization, this can lead to misunderstandings or disagreements.
  • Behaviours:
    • A mentor’s behaviour serves as a model for the mentee. Positive behaviours such as professionalism, punctuality, and ethical conduct can positively influence the mentee.
    • Negative or inconsistent behaviours can undermine the mentor’s credibility and the mentee’s trust in them.
  • Attitudes:
    • A mentor’s attitude can significantly impact the mentoring relationship. An optimistic, open, and respectful attitude can foster a positive mentoring relationship.
    • An attitude of continuous learning can inspire the same in mentees.
    • Negative attitudes or biases can hinder the development of a positive relationship and limit the mentee’s growth.
  • Emotional Awareness:
    • Emotional awareness allows mentors to understand and manage their own emotions, and to empathize with the feelings of the mentee. This is crucial in handling difficult situations and in maintaining a positive relationship.
    • Mentors with high emotional awareness can model emotional intelligence, guiding mentees in developing this important skill.
    • Lack of emotional awareness can lead to miscommunication, misunderstandings, or conflict.
  • Overall, self-awareness and ongoing self-reflection are crucial for mentors. They need to understand and manage their own values, behaviours, attitudes, and emotions, and consider how these impact their mentoring role. This not only supports a positive mentoring relationship but also contributes to the mentee’s professional development and the overall effectiveness of the mentoring process.
