Resilient Management, An Excerpt – A List Apart
Mentoring: lending advice and helping to problem solve based on your own experience.
Coaching: asking open questions to help your teammate reflect and introspect, rather than sharing your own opinions or quickly problem solving.
Sponsoring: finding opportunities for your teammate to level up, take on new leadership roles, and get promoted.
Delivering feedback: observing behavior that is or isn’t aligned to what the team needs to be doing and sharing those observations, along with praise or suggestions.

Are Women Harsher Critics Than Men on Dissertation Committees? - The Chronicle of Higher Education
I have drafted my own list of expectations. Here is what I can promise my students:

I will promise to treat you as a peer and an equal. I will do my best to offer you the kind of feedback that I would like to receive.
I will not talk down to you.
I will do my best to frame comments in a way that is not offensive, hurtful, or mean spirited.
I will probably put far-more-detailed comments on your work than you need or want. Detailed commentary is, in my view, a sign of respect. If I had nothing to say about your work, that would be worrisome, at best.
I will go out of my way to ensure that you know about and cite the work of underrepresented scholars in the field. This may require you to do a bit more reading outside the mainstream than you may have done otherwise.
You do not have to follow each and every suggestion I make. Rather, I hope only that you (a) accept criticism and either revise or fine-tune your view accordingly or (b) frame the work so that it’s clear that my particular criticisms or suggestions are not directly relevant to your project or argument.
I see the central goal of our field as developing new and forward-thinking views, not just offering critiques of other people’s views. Thus, I hope to see you develop your own view, and my comments are in that spirit, pushing you to new, original insights.
My aim in suggesting further reading is only to offer you ways to think about the same issue from different perspectives. You do not need to cite or engage with each and every item I suggest you read.
My goal is to see you succeed. Indeed, a student’s success — not necessarily in getting a "prize" job, but in the sense of developing a thoughtful, engaging research program — is my greatest reward.
Seeing your ideas develop or deepen is one of the main sources of pleasure I derive from my work. When I learn something new from your efforts, or see you carry forward a dialogue, I am enormously gratified. This is one of the great rewards of this job.
