Mentee Etiquette - How to Get the Most from your Mentor

  • Step 1: Read the quote from Elder Robert D. Hales (on the right). There are different kinds of mentors. You may need someone with a lot of experience to answer your questions—someone who has done what you want to do. Other mentors can be righteous friends or family members. These are people who are willing to spend time encouraging you to make changes in your life and holding you accountable to progress.
  • Step 2: Think about the kind of help you need. Write a list of people who could be your mentors. Ponder and pray about your list of names.
  • Step 3: Answer the questions below to start a mentor relationship. To invite someone to be your mentor, you could simply ask, “I’m trying to make a change in my life. Would you be willing to help me?”
  • Who would you like to be your mentor?
    • Clint Carter - e-Store, WordPress
    • Michael Riddle - Machinist
    • 240 lbs - Rachel Gubler
  • When will you ask him or her to be your mentor?
  • When could you meet to share your “life’s mission” and goals?
  • How frequently would you like to meet with your mentor? Once a quarter
  • Remember that you are responsible for your “life’s mission.” When you meet with your mentor:
    • Review your progress.
    • Review the roadblocks to your progress and what you are doing to overcome them.
    • Review specifically what you plan to do before you meet with your mentor again.
