In reality, each set of skills is made up of a combination of smaller, often complex skills and capabilities.

As a Mentor, I recognize not only the skills brought to the relationship but the expectations.
Fulfilling Mentor / Mentee Mutual Commitments:
Realistic expectations include practical elements like attending meetings when expected, completing tasks that were discussed, and following through on requests.
If either a protégé or a mentor fails to follow through on a regular basis, the mentoring relationship will collapse with negative feelings likely on both sides.
I Lead You Follow and Vice-Versa:
It is important to set realistic expectations for self and our protégé.
There are times when a mentor leads.
For most people who choose to mentor, this is a comfortable place to be.
The mentor shares expertise and helps the protégé gain similar knowledge by communicating experiences and suggesting resources.
The challenge comes when a protégé is not ready to move in the direction a mentor wants to lead.
It is important for mentors to recognize when to encourage a protégé to follow by applying gentle pressure in the form of encouragement, and when to step back, understanding that the protégé is not comfortable and needs to set a different pace or choose an alternate direction.
There may be times when stepping back is not enough—a mentor has to to get out of the way. By taking the opportunity to follow a protégé who is moving faster than the mentor anticipated or accompanying a protégé when she pursues an entirely different path than the mentor expected, a mentor not only encourages her protégé but acknowledges the possibility that she will learn something new as well.
A mentor’s ability to be flexible enough to lead when needed and follow when necessary will benefit both the mentor and the protégé.
