Tools for a Formal Mentoring Program: A Guide Every Mentee in Coaching Can Use
Lyons, Vincent; Pastore, Donna
Physical Educator, v73 n1 2016
Mentoring is crucial for the development of competent coaches (Jones, Harris, & Miles, 2009), and athletic departments and sport organizations are encouraged to use this process that links an inexperienced coach with a veteran mentor coach (Megginson & Clutterbuck, 1995). Mentored coaches benefit from gaining insight and wisdom into their profession and from building important relationships with significant others in the department or organization (Pastore, 2003). In this paper, we provide an overview of mentoring and give practical tools for implementing or strengthening a formal mentoring program. As such, relative worksheets for use by mentee and mentor coaches have been included in the appendices of this paper.
