Mentoring is a highly valuable development activity implemented in an organisation. At the core of the activity is the relationship between the mentor and the mentee, where the development of the mentee is the key focus. Mentors are people that volunteer their time and expertise and are a resource the mentee is privileged to access. They are willing and able to pass on the benefits of their knowledge and experience. The relationship between a mentor and mentee is best set around a specific goal, where the mentor acts as a support and coach for the mentee to meet that goal.
