Three Types of Mentorship Structures
This is the traditional model of mentoring, where one mentor (leader) and one mentee (employee) agree to enter into a mentoring relationship to help the mentee develop, improve, and achieve their goals. In this type of mentoring, the mentor has more experience in an area that the mentee is interested in, and so can act as an advisor and guide.
This involves colleagues with similar experience levels mentoring each other. They may take turns acting as ‘mentor’ and ‘mentee’, but overall, peer mentoring is about creating a formal support system, learning together, and holding one another accountable.
A more junior person mentors a more senior person.
