      APPRECIATION OF
   GENERATIONAL CULTURE
 DIFFERENCES BY THE MENTEE
      AND THE MENTOR
• GENERATION X (born 1963-1981)
  – WORK HARD IF BALANCE IN LIFE IS ALLOWED
  – EXPECT MULTIPLE FACULTY SEARCHES
  – ‘PAYING DUES’ DOES NOT EQUAL LONGEVITY
    AT A JOB
  – SELF-SACRIFICE TO BE ENDURED
    OCCASSIONALLY
  – QUESTION AUTHORITY & TRADITIONAL
    MODELS
      APPRECIATION OF
   GENERATIONAL CULTURE
 DIFFERENCES BY THE MENTEE
      AND THE MENTOR
• BABY BOOMERS (born 1945-1962)
  – WORK HARD OUT OF LOYALTY, SOMETIMES
    GUILT
  – EXPECT LONGER TERM COMMITMENT FROM
    INSTITUTION
  – ‘PAYING DUES’ SHOULD BREED LOYALTY
    FROM THE HEIRARCHY
  – SELF-SACRIFICE IS A VALUED VIRTUE
  – AUTHORITY (CHRONOLOGICAL AGE) IS
    RESPECTED

Niki Steckler, PhD                     30
                     Best Practices for Mentors

                       • Communicate explicitly what
                         works for you and why
                       • Encourage mentee to develop a
                         repertoire of role models
                       • Provide emotional and practical
                         support to mentee in difficult
                         moments

Niki Steckler, PhD              31
                     Best Practices for Mentees

              • Build your own personal “coaching
                staff”
              • Cultivate awareness of what you have to
                give back in a mentoring relationship
              • Be a mentor to others

“Ecologists tell us that a tree planted in a clearing
 of an old forest will grow more successfully than
 one planted in an open field. The reason, it
 seems, is that the roots of the forest tree are
 able to follow the intricate pathways created by
 former trees and thus imbed themselves more
 deeply. Indeed, over time, the roots of many
 trees actually graft themselves to one another,
 creating an interdependent mat of life hidden
 beneath the earth. This literally enables stronger
 trees to share resources with the weaker so that
 the whole forest becomes healthier. Similarly,
 human beings thrive best when we grow in the
 presence of those who have gone before.
