A while ago, I wrote about opening up my calendar for mentorship. Soon, quite a few people talked to me about career switches, interviews for university admissions, life in & career opportunities in Singapore, etc. I eventually asked all of them to score my mentoring. While the conversations are definitely very subjective, I decided that the scoring could be objective. I have decided to open source the evaluation criteria that I use for gauging how effective I am as a mentor. Besides, I will also put up and be very transparent about the scores that I receive, where am I lagging and where I am doing good.
Disclaimer: Even though I realize that feedback is very important, it’s voluntary and optional exercise for the mentees and I do not nudge anyone repeatedly to fill up my evaluation. Thus, I will keep on updating the chart as and when I get more responses.
You will find the evaluation criteria structured in the following way:
- Whether I answered all the questions satisfactorily, to-the-point, and in a structured way?
- Questions around:
- Ease of approach
- Content Expertise
- Clear and comprehensive speaking
- Any bias or prejudice while mentoring
- Professional integrity
- Did I refer any 3rd party material or a subject-matter-expert?
- Whether I am worthy of being referred?
- Overall score and my ROTI (KPI)
- Subjective Feedback
