Being a good mentor

People who mentor also benefit; studies have shown they often earn more money and promotions than nonmentors. But there are some important guidelines to consider before you start this mutually beneficial relationship. In the course, professor Ellen Ensher, author of Power Mentoring, explains how to get to know your protégé, shares the dos and don'ts for appropriate self-disclosure, and helps you develop a structure and agenda for each mentoring meeting.
