Mentoring and Coaching
Mentoring can be a truly effective means of not only assisting in guiding a co-worker or colleague, but can also serve to teach the mentor a variety of skills. It gives the mentor the opportunity to lead by example, by providing guidance, and by holding the mentee accountable in helping them to stay committed to their goals. A mentee benefits by being able to address concerns regarding their professional development one-on-one in a collaborative setting. All of these can be powerful self-teaching, developmental to tools em to benefit employees in performing on-the-job, as well as in developing one's career.Check out US Patent & Trademark Office (USPTO) mentoring toolkit at this link: OPM/training/Mentoring Toolkit 3-18-10.pdf
