Doug Dvorak’s The Magic of Mentoring program is an influential force for human capital development. What is Business Mentoring? A matter of trust. Business Mentoring is a structured and trusting relationship that brings people together with caring and competent individuals who offer guidance, support and encouragement aimed at developing and enhancing the business competence and character of the Mentee. A Business Mentor is a professional with specific business acumen and competencies who provides a Mentee with support, counsel, friendship, reinforcement and constructive example. Mentors are good listeners, people who care; people who want to help younger business professionals bring out strengths that are already there. Business Mentoring Defined Business Mentoring refers to a developmental relationship between a more experienced Mentor and a less experienced partner, or Mentee. Through regular interactions (face-to-face, on the phone or via email), the Mentee relies on the Mentor’s guidance to gain skills, perspective and experience. Mentoring exists in many forms: formal or informal, group or one-to-one, structured or unstructured and is always one size fits one! With roots in ancient history, Mentoring now brings value to organizations and communities worldwide.
