Students Mentoring Programme
Prof. R. A. Jadhav
Mentoring is a system of semi-structured guidance whereby one person shares knowledge, skills and experience to assist others to progress in their lives and careers. Mentors need to be readily accessible and prepared to offer help as the need arises - within agreed bounds.
Mentoring is more than ‘giving advice’, or passing on what your experience was in a particular area or situation. It is about motivating and empowering the other person to identify their issues and goals, and helping them to find ways of resolving or reaching them - not by doing it for them, or expecting them to ‘do it the way I did it’, but by understanding and respecting different ways of working.
According to David Clutterbuck, ‘Mentoring involves primarily listening with empathy, sharing experience, professional friendship, developing insight through reflection, being a sounding board, encouraging’.
According to Jacobi, “Mentoring is a one to one helping relationship or nurturing process.”
