I remember when I was first expected to mentor someone. I remember not feeling confident that I could do it, that I didn’t have enough experience to be a good mentor and not knowing where to start.
Lately, I’m seeing more and more testers in the same situation. This time, I’m on the outside looking in at people I know would be excellent mentors but they don’t feel confident that they would be.
How do you build confidence in your abilities? Conversely, how can we help build others up to be the excellent mentors that we see they could be?
