WHAT MAKES A GOOD MENTORBefore becoming a mentor, here are a few things to understand about the role of mentoring. Most of us have had a teacher, supervisor or coach who has been a mentor to us and made a positive difference in our lives. Those people wore many hats, acting as delegators, role models, cheerleaders, policy enforcers, advocates, and friends. Mentors assume these different roles during the course of a relationship, and share some basic qualities:
- A sincere desire to be involved with someone else's success and to better someone's life
- Respect for people
- Active listening skills
- Ability to see solutions and opportunities
