What Makes a Mentor

I have an article sidebar as part of my mouse pad and I wanted to share this with you. It is titled, "What Makes a Mentor."

A good mentor . . .

    • is someone absolutely credible whose integrity transcends the message, be it positive or negative;
    • tells you things that you may not want to hear but leaves you feeling you have been heard;
    • interacts with you in a way that makes you want to become better;
    • makes you feel secure enough to take risks;
    • gives you the confidence to rise above your inner doubts and fears;
    • supports your attempts to set stretch goals for yourself; and
    • presents opportunities and highlights challenges you might now have seen on your own.
