Self-mentoring is a process which requires one to assemble a realistic, accurate assessment of yourself (strengths and weaknesses) with the goal of crafting one's ‘ideal self’ to heighten job performance, career progression, or personal ambitions. This practice is a four-stage framework which includes: self-awareness, self-development, self-reflection, and self-monitoring.

There are four levels of self-mentoring. Each level builds on the other.

  • Level 1: Self-Awareness
  • Level 2: Self-Development
  • Level 3: Self-Reflection
  • Level 4: Self-Monitoring
