Mentor Traits and Requirements

In the workplace, FEAR often stops good mentoring; holding on to information, they may want my job.
A good mentor has to have the following attributes / traits (the culture of a company can influence this and should):
- Openness, don't hold anything back
- Wanting to see others succeed and grow
- Empower with information and skills
. A mentor need not be the manager
- Having no vested interest
- Gives objective advice and encouragement.
These are highly important and valuable people skills, but managers are too often focused on other issues.

The language used should be well versed, pronounced audibly and if possible with clear examples.
