The benefits of mentorship such as more job promotions, greater career satisfaction and career commitment have been well perceived. However, not all mentorship ends with a success. It is believed that individual differences, in particular personality characteristics, influence the effectiveness of mentoring relationships. Thus, it is worth exploring the role of personality characteristics in mentoring relationships.In this workshop, the four personality types in Personality Dimensions® will be introduced and a self-assessment will be conducted. Personality Dimensions® will also be used to explore mentees’ different learning and working styles, and develop relevant mentoring strategies. It is expected that the workshop will provide a new perspective to mentors on understanding their mentees.
