			      MENTORING

Mentors are senior careerists and/or managers/commanders who not only
personally become involved in the development of careerists within their
organization but also influence decisions to establish programs, commit
resources, make assignments, etc. that make career development happen.
Mentoring is most successful when the careerist being mentored is mobile
and can take advantage of the widest range of opportunities. Using the
ACTEDS plan as a base, mentors will facilitate training and career
broadening opportunities, help careerists assess their potential and
actively guide them in progressing through the appropriate career area
progression pattern. Mentors should be used extensively in the entry
grade levels. It is recommended that ACPMs and managers review each
employee's needs and desires, and consider fostering mentors for mobile
CP-19 careerists in all grade levels.
