QUESTIONS TO ASK YOURSELF
If you are mentoring someone, are you giving them enough of your time and interesting work?
Are the personality and work habits of your protégé similar to yours, and if not, are you able to make sure that doesn’t get in the way of working together?
Have you and your protégé clearly outlined his or her professional-development goals?
If you are being mentored, is the work interesting, and does your mentor give you credit for any projects you complete for him or her?
Do you feel like part of a team, and are you treated in an open, respectful manner?
