Vision for Individual Development Plan
Value Proposition Statement
My core objective is to ensure that every mentee bears the opportunity to grow and mature into a productive and engaged community member. Through unfailing guidance, support, role modeling and coaching, I will endeavor to instill standards and values that help the young members of society to prepare for great achievements in their personal as well as professional lives.
My vision is to emerge as an impactful, empathetic and honest program leader and to achieve international recognition in my career of choice in the near future. I have the inherent commitment to blossom into a leader with unique capacities to deliver augmented value to persons I interact with on a personal as well as professional level. I envision creating and by extension mentoring a dream team of leaders where every person taps into individual strengths. As a mentor, I am duty-bound to enable mentees make the desired transition through learning, problem resolution, coping with existing or emerging situations, career growth and personal development (Eller, Lev, & Feurer, 2014). As a person of integrity, I appreciate the confidentiality and personal attachment that is the foundation of every successful mentor/mentee relationship which is essentially very different from the traditional boss-subordinate associations.
As a mentor, I have the obligation to exhibit due care to each mentee in their paths towards envisioned growth and development. This involves gaining insights s to each learner’s circumstances and providing viable insights as to how the mentee can exploit the situations and bypass pitfalls (Eller et al., 2014). I am committed to openly sharing personal as well as professional experiences and knowledge that is of benefit to the mentee without expressly implying that their notions are presumably the best in countering a certain situation. I embrace the fact that each mentee is an individual in their own right with distinct personalities, weaknesses and strengths. This implies that I assume that the mentee bears equal status with me as the mentor in the mentoring relationship even in instances where day to day interactions project varying levels of hierarchy without the mentoring process.
As a mentor, my core responsibility in the relationship is to assist an individual improve their own degree of self-awareness, carefully think of current priorities and set clear sights on the future. I not only support mentees but continually challenge them in appropriate ways that encourage them to take charge of all responsibilities in their lives (Eller et al., 2014). I truly believe that a good mentor ensures the independence and confidence of the mentee grows in strength as a result of the relationships. More so, I strive to ensure that the mentee is in a position to progress autonomously upon achieving the goals of the relationship.
It is worth noting that mentoring relationships often vary with respect to purpose, persons involved and the mentoring context. Contextual elements such as the formal nature of the arrangement, relationship length, degree of rapport, level of commitment, experience influence, age differences, and abilities existing between the mentee and mentor determine overall outcome of the relationship (Eller et al., 2014). Towards ensuring that mentorship relationships remain effective throughout the process, I as a mentor am tasked with promising that the following parameters remain pillars in the relations: clarity of purpose; voluntary essence of the relationship, healthy rapport, role boundaries; appropriate behavioral and competence standards; regular review; and time evaluation of the relationship.
