Characteristics of a Mentor
I would envision my mentor to provide me with quality time; a person
that is honest, patient, and respectful.
In his book, Robert Greene advices on how to choose the right
mentor. If our lifes calling becomes one as a revolutionary type, then
an open minded, flexible, and liberal would be an ideal one. On the
other hand, if we feel undecided and confused, then a mentor to help
us gain confident is the one to choose (Greene, 2012).
I once had a mentor and my experience was positive. I hope to
experience the same or even more in my new journey to attaining
mastery.
