  3. Be open about your goals, expectations, challenges and concerns
  4. Actively listen and question
  5. Seek advice, opinion, feedback, and direction from your mentor
  6. Be open to constructive criticism/feedback and ask for it
  7. Assume responsibility for acquiring or improving skills and knowledge
  8. Give feedback to your mentor on what is working or not working in the mentoring relationship
