What makes a good mentor? 
Most of us have had a teacher, manager 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, 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 vulnerable or at risk clients 
Respect 
Active listening skills 
Empathy 
Patience 
Ability to see solutions and opportunities 
Flexibility 
 
 
Benefits of becoming a mentor 
Mentoring relationships are an opportunity for learning and growth. Many mentors say that the rewards they gain are as substantial as those for their mentees, and that mentoring has enabled them to: 
Achieve personal growth and learn more about themselves 
Feel they are making a difference 
Gain a better understanding of other cultures and develop a greater appreciation for diversity 
Enhance their relationships
