Transitioning the Mentoring Relationship The CFAR mentoring relationship is a minimum of 1 year; may extend beyond Be clear about why you want to end the relationship. If you've achieved your goals - celebrate! Let you mentor know how they have helped you, and show your appreciation If you're ending the relationship for other reasons, let your mentor know why – Perhaps the relationship is not moving you forward and you'd like to spend time engaging in other professional development activities Regardless of the reason why you'd like to end the relationship, it's important to give your mentor clear feedback about what they did well and what might do differently Mentors frequently become collaborators always appreciate that the future is unknown and will bring about a surprise
