In my opinion, a good mentor is a wise and trusted counselor or teacher. Mentors are helpful in many ways. For instance, mentors enhance training and career development, influence attitudes and professional outlook, and increases peoples self confidence. Here are some qualities of a mentor. They are willing to share skills, knowledge and expertise, authentic, personally involved, listens to your ideas, continues to learn and grow, assumes you’re great, and builds you up. A good example of a mentor is Elijah. He was Elisha’s mentor and taught him how to be a strong prophet throughout life and sharing God’s word.
