What makes a good mentor?

I am asked this question a lot. But I don’t think I’m informed enough to answer it well. I’d like to change that. Maybe you can help.

What makes a good mentor? In your eyes, what are a mentor’s primary traits and responsibilities? Are there resources that have clarified mentorship for you? If so, please let me know.

I’ll collect and consolidate the learnings from this group and share them with everyone next week. I hope they will benefit the people in your life who are seeking to either be mentors or be mentored.

Thank you.
