Mentor is defined in the Merriam-Webster dictionary as “someone who teaches or gives help and advice to a less experienced and often younger person ”. Becoming an effective mentor, however, is more than that. Mentor develops long-term relationship with mentee, helps their growth and development, and offers support and wisdom. It needs a systematic learning process by analyzing and discussing mentoring in addition to willingness and interest. Each mentor may have their own objectives and methods, and it can be built up by experiences. It will amplify the benefit and create a synergistic effect by sharing their perspectives and knowledge with other mentors. Reflecting upon the mentoring relationships is a vital part of becoming a more effective mentor. This presentation will provide the opportunity to reflect the past and implement changes in the future. Audience will be able to learn systematic techniques of mentorship more efficiently and be able to have an idea how to generalize mentoring strategy yet specify for each mentee focusing on the aligning mentoring, maintaining effective communication, fostering independence, and cultivating ethical awareness.
