INCLUSIVE MENTORSHIP – 5 QUICK TIPS 

Successful mentorship is a partnership between the mentor and the staffer. It’s a balancing act between guiding and role modeling, while allowing the staff to fine tune their skills individually and as a team.

  1. Fill your staff with individuals diverse in abilities, personalities and background.
  2. Successful mentorship is a balancing act. You’re empowering the staff to work freely and decisively, with backup support available as needed for problem solving.
  3. Successful mentorship extends beyond the initial training period. It’s about the ongoing conversations and the relationships that build over time between the whole staff.
  4. Establishing a sense of trust among the staff will make the difference in helping mentees build the confidence they need when trying out new skills and ideas.
  5. Use modeling to demonstrate best practices during real life moments.
