What makes you a good mentor?

I was very fortunate early in my career to have access to great mentors. They provided me great examples of how to conduct myself in business, assist with decisions that shaped my career and how to give back to my community. I want to be able to provide what I was so lucky to have when I was younger and that I still have to others in order to help them become successful. I also want to give back to Carleton University, an institution that opened so many doors for me in my life.
