A Better Leader
whole concept of mentoring should be to expect a better results and skills than
those originally displayed by the mentor. This is because the mentoree has some natural ability or
related experience previous to the encounter with the mentor which can
contribute to the mentoree’s
growth and development. Thus, each succeeding generation in a mentoring process
should become better, more advanced and capable than the previous one.
this to the additional insights that the Holy Spirit develops through the Word
of God in to both the mentor and the mentoree
in their combined relationship, the results should obviously producing a better
leader and future mentor.
concept seems to border somewhat on “idealism”.
But in many situations and processes it is obviously true. However, it is
important to realize that it takes diligent work on behalf of both the mentor
and the mentoree to see these
improved results and development with and in each of the succeeding
the mentoring process is weakened or fragmented in some way, the results will
vary greatly depending on the source or catalyst of the weakness. Anyone
involved in these relationships should be aware that not all mentoring
relationships have a long term effectiveness. Many mentoring relationships are not
completed relationships and thus they may be transferred top different mentors.
the mentoring relationship is completed and has yielded positive results the
mentoree should now become a mentor. This perpetuates the abilities of leadership
to be positioned correctly and to continue and carry on the desired results and
intentions. Mentorees who have been
successfully and properly mentored generally have a natural appreciation for
the mentoring process and relationship. They are also generally capable and
enthusiastic about perpetuating mentoring relationships if they have become
properly motivated leaders.
An Example for other Mentors
properly motivated leader and an enthusiastic and active mentor is an example
for other mentors to observe and follow. Everyone can recognize genuine
enthusiasm. Genuine enthusiasm is a natural catalyst for growth and development
in all of our relationships in life. So the natural result would be for other
mentors to have an impact on each other. This would include such areas as
instructional education, hands on skill practice and development and enhancing
the positive qualities of mentor / mentoree
