This week on Episode 5 of the 24KaratsLife Podcast, I had Sam Semako Jinadu join me to discuss the topic: Developing healthy mentoring relationships. If you don’t know my guest, Sam, he is a Career and Perception Management Strategist. He is the CEO of Careerwise Consults. He is an author, public speaker and convener of seminars.

Together we discussed some of the basic elements of relationships, which are:

1. Trust

2. Vulnerability

3. Constant Communication

4. Sacrifice


There are basic characteristics of a healthy mentoring relationship. These include:

1. Purpose driven

2. Nourishing

3. Whole

4. Result oriented

5. Fulfilling

We talked about the three factors necessary for ensuring that a mentoring relationship works well. They are:

1. Interest: Both the mentor and protege should have a shared interest. As a protege, if you desire to be mentored in the subject of business, your mentor should be interested in the subject of business as well.

2. Values: People have value systems based on their beliefs. A protege who values honesty must not be mentored by someone who doesn’t.

3. Personal Goals: It is not a must that both parties have the same personal goals. However, there has to be a place where those goals meet. One of a protege’s personal goals should be to develop and grow. His mentor’s goal should be to help the protege develop and grow. One rule in mentoring is that the mentor must not enforce his personal goals on his protege.

Initiating a mentoring relationship is one thing, sustaining it is where the job is, knowing when to terminate it is also very vital to both parties. These and many more were discussed in details.

6 Thoughts on “#05 – Developing healthy mentoring relationships

  1. How to check if you have a warrant in arkansas, vandalia municipal court public records search.

  2. Amongst me and my partner we have owned additional MP3 avid gamers around the many years than I can depend, which include Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etcetera. But, the ultimate couple yrs I have settled down to a single line of gamers. Why? Since I was pleased to explore how well-designed and enjoyable to hire the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.

  3. Yes, I love it! purchase medication online “Don Jon” deserves praise for wearing its message lightly and yet for daring to present such a lecture in today’s Internet-drenched environment. Gordon-Levitt may be blithe in discussing pornography, but his movie nonetheless asserts that porn is addictive and destructive, that it intrudes on intimacy, and that it short-circuits the capacities for interaction and also, ultimately, for pleasure. That’s a serious subject and a committed viewpoint, handled with wit and intelligence.

  4. An interesting discussion is worth comment. I think that you should write more on this topic, it might not be a taboo subject but generally people are not enough to speak on such topics. To the next. Cheers
