Mentee Selection

Taking into consideration the detailed guidelines provided in the template, decide on a potential candidate to mentor or coach. You should select a mentee that you have some sort of relationship with so you can build trust and talk to your mentee throughout the process.

Evaluate Personal Readiness

Regardless of past experience levels, take time to evaluate your personal readiness as a mentor. Reflect on areas of strength and areas where further development may be needed, incorporating characteristics and practices employed by effective leaders.  This summary will help inform the value proposition you will create in the next section.

Value Proposition

Develop a value proposition statement that articulates the value you can offer as a mentor to others. This should be a short statement (50-100 words) that establishes a clear vision for you as a mentor/coach and expresses values you possess that would appeal to your mentee. Review the Topic 1 Resources for additional support on creating your value proposition.

Mentee’s Vision

Once you have selected a mentee, write a brief vision statement (250-300 words) describing your vision for working with your mentee. The vision statement should capture the mentee’s perceptions of working with a mentor. Review the Topic 1 Resources for additional support on creating the mentee’s vision statement.

APA format is not required, but solid academic writing is expected.

LDR-612: IDP – Vision for Individual Development Plan




Selecting your Mentee:

When selected someone to coach or mentor, take in consideration these suggested guidelines:

  • Seek a person who is in your professional field for practice who is at an appropriate level compared to your position. For example, a mid-level manager would not be in a position to mentor a VP or CEO.
  • Avoid selecting immediate family members.
  • If a peer/friend is selected, be sure you can maintain a professional level of communication for the coaching/mentoring relationship. Boundaries need to be in place to avoid a relationship that is too unfocused or casual.
  • Assess mentee candidates for initiative, eagerness, engagement, responsibility, organization, and communication skills.
  • An ideal candidate is someone in your professional field who is goal-oriented and receptive to receiving and providing constructive feedback.
  • Ensure mentee candidate has availability throughout the semester to engage in the coaching/mentoring relationship. This is a minimum commitment of 5 weeks.

Directions for Documenting Your Plan:

During your coaching and mentoring experience, you are required to complete a self-reflection log of your experiences and obstacles. Over the course of the semester, you will complete a variety of templates that will help to inform the final plan for your mentee. These templates will be helpful components to evaluating and modifying the overall coaching/mentoring experience.

Complete the Mentee details. Then, in 100-150 words each, respond to the prompts on the following page.
