The term “mentor”
comes from the Greek “Odyssey” – from the name of Odysseus’s friend, Mentor, to whom, when departing for Troy, he “entrusted his entire house and asked him to watch over everything.” Mentor’s task was to bring up, educate and perfect Telemach – Odysseus’s son. Today the term mentor denotes a person with developed skills, charismatic, trustworthy. A master, a kind of a role model – an example to follow in professional and personal life.
