MANAGING THE MENTORING RELATIONSHIP

Guidelines to Giving Feedback

Mentoring at Lean4U.net
There are 4 key guidelines to follow when giving feedback in a mentoring relationship.

1. Follow the Mentee's Agenda

  • Feedback should follow the mentee's agenda closely, which means being directly relevant and applicable to the mentee's interests and concerns.

  • The mentor shouldn't attempt to divert the issue and should ensure that the mentee retains ownership of the issue throughout.

2. Give Practical Feedback

  • Instead of abstract or theoretical feedback, the mentor should give feedback that can be acted on – feedback that the mentee can respond to in a real way.

3. Check for Understanding

  • Before giving feedback, a mentor should check for understanding of what's being said.

  • The mentor should actively listen to what the mentee's saying and ask questions to clarify, confirm, and ensure understanding.

4. Make a Connection

  • A mentor should always make a connection between progress and learning, as well as the bigger picture and the mentoring journey.

  • This means helping the mentee to see feedback as movement forward or progress toward the ultimate goal – not as an interruption or deviation from the journey.
