Q. What is mentoring?

A. Mentoring is the act of helping someone to improve their project management skills. Mentors are facilitators and catalysts in a process of discovery and insight. In a learning partnership, the mentor’s role is to be the “guide on the side” rather than “the expert with the answers.” Instead of being mentor driven, with the mentor taking full responsibility for the mentee’s learning, the mentee learns to share responsibility for the learning, setting priorities, and becomes increasingly self-directed.
