What makes you a good mentor?

It matters to be able to discuss perspectives, ideas, concerns with others, and listen with intent. Mentoring is a way to learn about and better understand another, and possibly reframe things so that it becomes clearer and lessens barriers. I love to learn and am always curious about how someone thinks, and makes decisions. Plus,. I learn about younger people and their place in the world!
