Lawyers: Do you REALLY know what mentoring is all about?


You've been told you are supposed to be a mentor for a young lawyer. Where do you start? What is expected? How can you make the mentoring relationship most successful?

I am asked frequently about mentoring in law firms and how to create a successful mentoring program. I owe a great deal of my own success to mentors. So, I have written a great deal on mentoring. To learn more about what mentoring is all about, read some of my articles.

I like to ask mentors to describe what a mentor is and to give examples of when they were mentored. Once you have those specific examples you can boil them down to essential characteristics.
