Mentoring is about helping people through various stages in their life by establishing a heart connection with them. Mentors provide an outside perspective, a sounding board, sometimes guidance and direction, and sometimes they’re just those great listeners who make you feel heard and understood. Mentoring is not just telling someone what to do, but walking alongside them as they experience life. Laughing with them, crying with them, experiencing with them what they are going through. And, ultimately, not allowing them to stay “stuck” where they are but getting them safely to their next destination.
