Mentoring is Giving a Person a Passion of Following his own Way

If we say that each great person has had a great teacher (mentor), than mentorship is not about training to technical skills; it is about Dao (way), about passionateness. A great mentor should give to the person understanding, feeling of its way (Dao); and light in him/her a fire of passionateness, a passion of following his own way. And on this way he will also get the technical skills and all other things.

On Mentoring & Dao

A very interesting comment from Konopatov. Certainly, the motivational side of mentoring and the reference to "passionateness" is one of the hidden benefits of a great mentor.
