Identifying Sources of Collateral Damage in Mentoring Programs and Correcting Them.
Kilburg, Gary; Hancock, Tom
This paper presents three appendixes from a workshop that addressed how to identify sources of collateral damage in mentoring programs and how to correct them. The first appendix includes a summary of problem areas that mentoring teams may face as reported in the literature (e.g., transition from teacher training to teaching, selection and matching of mentors and mentees, preparation for the mentor, emotional support, time, and communication and coaching). The second appendix offers a survey that examines eight issues in mentoring (e.g., problem ares experienced in the mentoring program, frequency of problems, what the respondent learned about the mentoring process from the workshop, how to improve the workshop, the most valuable experience during the workshop, and the most valuable service offered in the mentoring program). The third appendix offers three case studies of recurring problems for mentoring teams, each based on a real mentoring team relationship. The case studies deal with time issues, support for mentees, and the careful matching of mentors and mentees. (SM)
