Mentoring is primarily about creating an enduring and meaningful relationship with another person. While the relationship may be short-term, the focus is primarily on the quality of that relationship and the factors that affect relationship quality, such as mutual respect, willingness to learn from each other and the use of deeper interpersonal skills.

Mentors and their partners typically look forward to their meeting together and make every effort to preserve their meeting time.
