1. The key competency is the “listening” (old and still important), understanding the situation around the person and being able to relate this to personal, professional or both etc. whichever is obstructing the client’s professional ability. So here is the sidelining of the idea that ‘personal and professional aspects are different’. In other words it is probably prudent to cover personal/family/corporate aspects during the mentoring process.

3. Mentoring is a rapidly growing “profession” and there could be increased commercial interest for it in the near future. Mentors must have a thorough understanding of human and business values and try to bring about a synergy in the course of the mentoring process.
Well, the list could go on. These are just some initial thoughts out of my understanding and not a well researched work. In fact it lacks that!
