Mentors and mentoring

Who is a mentor and why do we seek them?

Leave your emotions at the bay

Remember, they are not your friend:

They will always be there for you, no matter what

They only empower you to make the decision and not take decisions for you.

You do not always have to listen to your mentor

Myth busted: You do not need to have one mentor all your life

Give back what you have received
