"One of the greatest values of mentors is the ability to see ahead what others cannot see and to help them navigate a course to their destination" – John C Maxwell
"Mentoring is to support and encourage people to manage their own learning in order that they may maximise their potential, develop their skills, improve their performance and become the person they want to be." Eric Parsloe
Mentoring is a powerful personal development and empowerment tool. It is an effective way of helping people to progress in their dreams and aspirations.
Mentoring relationships tend to be voluntary on both sides: that the more successful, senior partner, the mentor, wishes to pass on some of what they’ve learned to someone else who will benefit from their experience.
