The mentoring relationship can be formal or informal. In any case, communication of expectations and follow-through are very important. A good mentor serves the interests of the agency in developing its employees by coaching them to greater personal development and achievement. A mentee is motivated and interested in advancing his/her career and the program mission of their organization. A mentee is an achiever willing to take the initiative for his/her own development and make the most of available opportunities.
