The mentor-mentee relationship is a very important one in an organization. In a large way, the mentor-mentee relationship defines and determines the destiny of the organization. Although there are no rules or laws for the mentor-mentee relationship; an organization in which this relationship functions in a haphazard and unstructured manner is not likely to benefit from it.

Some of the general principles on which the mentor-mentee relationship should be built could include the following:

  • It should be based on mutual trust and definition and recognition of each other’s roles and responsibilities
  • The mentor-mentee relationship should be mentor-guided, but mentee-driven
  • There should be alignment of business goals and strategy between the mentor and mentee
  • There should be complete honesty and openness in the communication between the mentor and the mentee.

The mentor-mentee relationship is vital for an organization

Implementing a mentor-mentee relationship is a vital need for organizations that identify and plan to develop and adapt an effective and painless succession transition. The points mentioned above are broad attributes of a mentor-mentee relationship. The way in which these and other related characteristics of this relationship work varies from one organization to another.

Each organization that embarks on a mentor-mentee relationship has to identify the specific dynamics of the organization to understand what it takes to build a successful mentor-mentee relationship. Such an organization has to first get down to understanding the need for putting a mentor-mentee relationship in place. It has to understand the factors that facilitate a successful mentor-mentee relationship program.
