Wake Forest offers tips for mentoring SPECIAL TO THE CHRONICLE January is National Mentoring Month. Wake Forest University asks: Do you have time to mentor? Effective mentoring requires investing in anoth er person's growth and development. It is an inten tional commitment. "Mentors share institu tional knowledge, develop future leaders, and empow er staff for success," says Allison Mc Williams, direc tor of Wake Forest University's Mentoring Resource Center. "Managers who choose not to mentor their people find their people choose to go elsewhere." For those interested in mentoring, Mc Williams offers tips for building effi cient and effective relation ships. 1. Set goals for the rela tionship and create a learn ing plan. Effective mentor \ ing requires mutual accountability: both part ners should keep their com mitments to each other, check-in with each other on a regular basis, and hold each other accountable for doing what they say they will do. 2. Be willing to share stories and trust that the other person will keep con fidences. 3. Meet face-to-face. There is no substitute for in-person mentoring. Computers can connect people around the world. Yet, sophisticated technol ogy cannot replicate effec tive one-on-one relation ships. Our high-tech cul ture makes in-person men toring invaluable in devel oping interpersonal skills such as being present to one another, asking good questions, practicing active listening, and seeking out and responding to feed back. 4. Care about the per son you are mentoring. Focusing on a mentee's goals and providing objec tive feedback and guidance is essential. A mentor can damage another person by using this powerful rela tionship to influence anoth er's personal or career choices. Those who do not have any time to invest should not take part in the relationship. Wake Forest was one of the first higher education institutions in the nation to adopt a campus-wide men toring model. % WAKE FOREST UNIVERSITY Have a Story Idea? Let us Know ms@wmnickm CRIM^ ^ * ?
