WHAT IS A MENTOR?

People often wonder what it means to be a mentor.  A mentor is: “Someone who acts as an advisor or coach for a mentee. They provide expertise and professional knowledge from a more experienced perspective.”

A mentor is someone who shares  – their knowledge, experience, expertise and perspective with someone looking for some guidance and support.  To be a good mentor, you don’t have to be super smart or incredibly wise! You just need to be a good listener who is eager to share!
