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.
