Successful mentoring relationships move through four predictable phases. These phases are called, preparing (getting ready), negotiating (establishing agreements), enabling (mentoring at work), and coming to closure (reflection and celebration). The phases build on one another to form a developmental sequence that varies in length from one relationship to another. This book guides readers through all four phases, and provides answers to many frequently asked questions about how to make the most of a mentoring relationship, as well as strategies for success. Some of the questions include: Is mentoring for me? How could a mentor help me? Why do I need it? How do I find the right mentor? What should I consider in selecting a mentor? What should the first conversation be like? How do I make sure that the relationship gets started on the right foot? How do I keep the relationship on track? How do I maximize my learning? How do I get the feedback I need?    How can I ensure that the relationship ends in a good way?By encouraging a focus on goals that are S.M.A.R.T. (specific, measurable, action-oriented, realistic and timely), this book will help mentees get more out of their mentoring relationships.
