Barbara Chaderton
Hello,

For there to be a Mentor, there must be a Mentee - someone receptive to another's experience. A Mentor can silently lead by example, verbally educate, visually demonstrate or supportively encourage. A mentorship can be assigned, volunteered and occur by happenstance.

We are surrounded by mentors: parents, teachers, religious leaders, counselors, etc. With Advanced Mentoring, I believe it means stepping forward to mentor others we otherwise would never reach; extending a service to those who seek our experience or are merely curious about it.

Definitely the ultimate reward is making a differnce in someone's life. The challenge is overcoming obstacles in communication and opinions from those that do not want or need a mentor.

Since we already have such a diverse group here I am curious to hear what each of you think. Why do you want to be a mentor? What are the benefits that you receive from being a mentor? What are the challenges you face in acting as a Mentor?

Being a Mentor, there is a very special bond that occurs between my Mentees and I. And at times it can be trying, but when my Mentees succeed, it makes it all worth it.
