Feedback from Mentors
As a mentor, think carefully about feedback you want to give to your protégé. Try to create a balance between positive encouragement, and critiques on areas that need improvement.
On Goal Setting for Protégés
Discuss expectations. Talk about how often you will meet with your mentor, and what you want to accomplish.
Learn How to Accept Criticism
As a protégé, remember that when your mentor critiques you, he or she is simply trying to help. Respond positively to advice and suggestions given to you by your mentor, and attempt to make improvements based on his or her guidance.
