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
