            4. Tips for Identifying the Goals of each party

             

            Specificity:

            Have you each identified specific short term and long term goals?

            Are the goals definite and precise?

             

            Measurability:

            Have you each determined how to measure success?

             

            Work plan:

            Do you each have an action plan to achieve goals?

            Have you both considered the impact of achieving the goals?

             

            Reality check:

            Are the goals realistic?

            Have you determined a completion date?

            Can success be achieved within the time allocated?

            Will additional resources or tools be needed to achieve success?

             

            Your roles:

            Are each of your roles to advise, suggest or listen?

            Will your mentee’s goals require you to provide something other than guidance?

            How can you be the most helpful to your mentee?
