What Are the Top Attributes that Make a Mentor Most Helpful?


If you know me, and especially if you ever worked with me, you know that I always mentored younger lawyers. I suppose that is why I am coaching lawyers now.

In my old firm, and more recently, I have done programs for mentors and mentees on mentoring.I like to ask group members to share their most memorable mentoring experience. Then I like to have group members describe attributes they believe make a mentor great. Finally I like to have the mentors describe what they expect from the mentees and have the mentees describe what they expect from the mentors. That always leads to an interesting discussion.
