ABSTRACT Mentoring and coaching are all part of educational training to develop people in the professions. There are several similarities and differences in the main issues involved in mentoring and coaching. They are related to the selfdevelopment, professional growth and career development of the mentee/coachee. In establishing the approaches to be used, care must be taken to ensure that each person understands the limits or boundaries of the relationship. Indeed, it may be as important to indicate that there is a way out of the relationship as it is to encourage its development in the first place. Supervisory approaches
Criminologist James Fox of Northeastern University predicts that murders committed by teens will skyrocket as the population of kids 10 and under is higher than population of 21st century teens by 20%. (Stephens) Mentoring is the act of helping out someone that isn't as knowledgeable or experienced in different areas. The goal is to make them leaders. (Patterson)
Attached is a completed application for the mentoring program I would like to pursue. Not sure if I have overstepped my boundary, but I have discussed this with my RA, Nick Lalpuis, and he supports the proposal. I also discussed this with Laura Watson this morning and she is in agreement with it as well. Please advise if there are any additional documentation or steps I need to go through to get
Effective mentoring can have significant affects on at-risk children. Positive mentor-mentee relationships influence high outcomes, socially and academically. This paper will look at the development, difficulties, and outcomes of mentoring in order for it to meaningfully influence the lives of at-risk children.
The issues I have decided to address are the lack of formal in group mentors and mentorship opportunities available for female students, faculty, and staff of color. The University has been intentional about recruiting students, faculty and staff of color. Despite these efforts our women of color who work as faculty or staff are the few available mentors available for students. Unfortunately, they are burdened with few professional growth opportunities while juggling work, mentorship requests, as well as providing the minority voice on committees throughout the campus. Subsequently, these women do not have in group mentors to support their growth. While some research shows, professionals who have been mentored are more likely to engage in mentoring, this does not seem hold true for women in general, it is especially untrue for women of color (Wright and Wright 1987). Increased professional expectations, distress and demands are likely the reasons for this difference. With all this, it is clear that women of color are at a significant disadvantage for finding mentors on this campus, and in most male dominated fields.
One of the more appealing opportunities that I hope to take advantage of as a University Honors Student is the Professional Mentoring Program. Through my involvement with the Boy Scouts, I had the good fortune of getting to know one of the adult leaders, Mr. Thomas Popp, who became a professional mentor to me. Over the years, I have helped Mr. Popp with various engineering-related activities, from setting up a hands-on engineering course for fellow scouts, to double-checking blueprints for errors. A junior-year job shadowing experience with Mr. Popp was particularly enlightening (and fun). Bypassing the office experience I had expected, we headed straight for the Louisville FC soccer team’s practice field. There, he taught me to use specialized

Mentoring is a strategy that is beneficial to increased productivity in the workplace as well as a fulfilling love for one’s career. Mentoring can take place at many levels. It can occur at an education level or as we enter into prospective careers. Those who miss out on the opportunity to be mentored, have a lower chance to perform at high levels or receive positions that are more successful. Mentors and protégé’s work on challenging tasks and activities together, in an effort to enhance the skills of the protégé. The earlier a protégé is taken under the wing of a mentor proves extremely beneficial.
This is an empirical work. The study the authors conducted analyzed the design of the formal mentoring programs and the perceived effectiveness from both mentor and protégé perspectives. The results helped close the gap between science and practice regarding the design of formal mentoring programs (Allen, et al., 2006).
I can make a great impact on my campus as a teacher leader by following the model of mentoring new teachers. This upcoming school year, I will have two new teachers coming on campus to teach third grade. This article was perfect timing for me to process how to best serve these teachers as a mentor using one instructional process at a time. Mentoring is not a buddy, but an instructional support member focused on improving instruction. In addition, our campus is a firm believer in the discussion based teaching. Brondyk and Stanulis state, “as students articulate their thinking and analyze and respond to the ideas of others, they learn to formulate arguments, deepen their understanding of the content, and develop critical thinking skills” (2014,
Furthermore, Munson (2010) also explored the nature of non-family, natural mentoring relationships between mentors and youths who were in the process of exiting foster care. These authors found that most youths meet mentors through formal systems such as adults who work in child welfare, education, or mental health. In both of these studies, it was the qualitative nature of the relationship that was examined, such as positive characteristics of mentors, features of the relationship perceived to be helpful, and the kind of support the mentors offered

Some major business executives may say that earlier in their career they established a mentor relationship that helped them to get to where they are in their career. Research has shown that this statement can be true for some executives but not for all. Some experts believe that just having mentor relationships can or cannot affect someone’s career path and development. The purpose of this paper is to explain exactly what mentoring is and how it successful works within the workplace environment. Using support from various scholarly articles, I was able to discuss define the concept of mentoring and how it relates within the workplace setting. Using this concept, I establish the role of the mentor and mentee in regards
Mentorship is very important in the workplace especially in the area of training and development. The mentor-protégé relationship is a much needed relationship that begins in the early career stage and this relationship involves the current or new employees and the supervisor or other colleagues that provide work-related guidance. The relationship itself is comprehensive and involves “educational, occupational, physical, social, and spiritual development” (Greenhaus,, Callanan, & Godshalk, 2010, p 211). One of the initial task of the early career the establishment of the career field which involves the gaining of the workplace competence, learn what is needed to excel in the organization, and to gain acceptance in the workplace to be recognized as the valued employee. There are many ways of achieving the above mentioned advantages in the workplace which one main method is through the use of the mentorship program.
Implementing a strong mentoring program that fosters individual and personal growth within the company is vital for the future of this firm. This includes setting up and maintaining a mentoring program. The mentoring program will be set up with individuals from all levels of achievement, that are willing to devote a portion of their time to the firm’s prosperity.
