1. Do your homework. Find out who mentors the person you are interested in asking to be your mentor.
2. Have a plan. Be clear on what you are expecting out of the relationship and where you want to grow to.
3. If you are doing group mentoring, or instruction based training, get as much information and resources, specific to your needs as you can. Don't be shy and especially if your paying for it, speak up. Many times the speaker is reading the audience and will go in the direction of questions.
4. Do take risks in your relationship, don't be afraid of disclose. Your hurt can only turn into a scar when it's been healed. Sometimes one word, one sentence, one highlight from scripture interpretation can set you on the right track.
5. Always asks for best practices. Implementing them will save you time, energy and heartache.
6. Mentoring gives you accountability, embrace it.
