A quick answer to that question, is someone who solves your problems or provides advice. A better perspective to answer this is to consider thelong-term effect of mentoring. A mentor is one who successfully develops a mentee (the person she or he is mentoring). The interactions may be frequent or few and far between, but mentoring is a lasting relationship.
Oprah Winfreyexplained, “I mentor when I see something and say, ‘I want to see that grow’”
It is a mutual relationship that leaves no doubt in either’s mind.In most cases if you find yourself asking the question, “Are you, my mentor?”, then the answer is probably no.
It is not surprising that the benefits of mentoring are mutual because it comes from a positive aspect of human quality.
