business mentoringMentors can encourage mentorees in the following ways:

• Affirm the mentoree in his efforts to accomplish a specific task or in the taking of risks.

• Inspire the mentoree to achieve either by modeling behavior or by sharing the values which have inspired the mentor in her own development.

 • Challenge the mentoree to become who he really is and to achieve all that he can, which is often more than a mentoree believes to be possible.

• Acknowledge the mentoree in the efforts made and growth achieved. Acknowledgment from a mentor provides a sense of validation and leads to greater self-confidence.
