What makes you a good mentor?

I feel it is important to give back to the institutions that have shaped our lives and helped us to achieve our successes. In addition, I think that experience is the best teacher and that passing on experience to the next generation of Engineers is critical to their development and will greatly benefit the industry as a whole.
