Definition of Mentoring
Professor David Clutterbuck offers the following definition of mentoring.
‘Mentoring is a learning relationship between two people. It requires a range of human qualities such as trust, commitment and emotional engagement. It includes a range of skills including listening, questioning, challenge and support. Mentoring has a time scale. In some contexts it is a life long relationship, in others it may be a few months.’
Clutterbuck coined an acronym for what mentors do:
• Manage the relationship
• Offer mutual respect
