Figure 2 Models used in mentoring

Once you’ve identified your goal and set some objectives, the mentor will often use a framework or model to give structure to your discussions. In this section, you’ll focus on two of these models.

Understanding the way a mentor might approach this can help you to work with them more effectively. You could use your understanding of these models to start thinking about a problem you are facing or a goal you have set yourself.
