Situational Mentoring has enabled over 40,000 mentors and proteges to employ four Mentoring Styles in a flexible manner – so mentors equip proteges with what they know (wisdom, practical know-how, etc.) and empower what proteges want to learn, do and become.
Situational Mentoring prevents “getting stuck” overly using a Preferred Mentoring Style. Mentors stop dominating proteges or expecting them to figure out what to do when they cannot. Proteges stop being too dependent or so independent they won’t heed mentor’s wise counsel.
Since 1978, different kinds of proteges have benefited from this: youth in grades 4-12, college students, new teachers and school principals, new hires in corporate and government situations, as well as proteges needing guidance for career development and for becoming leaders.

Dr. Gray developed a Mentoring Style Indicator® for each type of protege and their mentors – to identify Preferred Mentoring Styles – so they can work together successfully. The Mentoring Style Indicator was the first mentoring assessment to be included in O.K. Buros' Handbook of Mental Measurements (over 25 years ago).
