Based on a review of literature, the following steps are discussed in detail: (1) declaring intent; (2) determining the role players; (3) forming a planning committee; (4) implementing the program; and (5) evaluating the program. Benefits to the protege include increased self-confidence, improved interpersonal skills, the development of personal reflection, and application of theory to practice. Mentors gain personal growth, professional satisfaction, improved communication skills, heightened motivation, and the development of leadership skills. The appendix includes a diagram of the implementation stages. Contains 58 references. (LMI)
