A mentee takes an active role and responsibility for his or her learning and development and a mentor facilitates that growth by asking thought-provoking questions that help you to reflect on your experiences. The intended outcome is that you will be able to make strategic and informed decisions regarding your academic and professional life.  Ultimately, a mentor will ask you the questions that you may not be asking yourself.
