Part I: Mentor/Mentee: A Special Relatio... > Using the Power of the Mentor Role

Chapter 9. Using the Power of the Mentor Role

There is a personal power source born into every human being. There are also a great many ways that this inner power can be disabled, suppressed, misdirected, and even crushed. For example, children who are undernourished, abused, traumatized, kept in ignorance, subjected to drugs (and so on), or forced to have their personalities distorted or curtailed in dozens of ways, might never have the power reserve available to them for building a happy, secure and productive life.

Even with a “normal” upbringing, there can be areas in peoples’ lives that require differing degrees of help. Many mentors consider it their task to fill in the cracks in a person’s vulnerabilities, provide what the person needs in the way of skill and insight and to empower them with what they need to build a better life.
