Mentoring Style Indicator
Enables mentors to provide appropriate assistance, which proteges / mentees will accept and use.
The MSI assesses the Four Mentoring Styles displayed in Gray's Mentor-Protege Relationship Model.
The MSI indicates the style of assistance a Mentor likes to provide & a Protege likes to receive, so appropriate assistance is provided and utilized. This promotes goal attainment and enhances mentoring relationships.
The Informational & Guiding Mentoring Styles equip Proteges with what Mentors know.
The Collaborative & Confirming Mentoring Styles empower what Proteges want to learn, do and become.
