The origin of the word mentor dates back to ancient times. The son of Odysseus in Homer's epic story of the Trojan War had a tutor named Mentor. Since ancient times the word Mentor has meant trusted counselor and guide.
In today's business world, the definition of mentor has been expanded. Mentors play a number of roles and have many responsibilities.
Today a mentor is expected to be an individual who can be depended upon to share personal insights and to provide guidance, coaching and support that can enhance the performance and career development of another.
