Freedom to Allow and Promote

A mentor is someone who helps a protégé in some very practical ways: by giving timely advice that encourages the protégé; by risking his or her own reputation in backing the protégé; by bridging between the protégé and needed resources; by modeling and setting expectations that challenge the protégé; by giving literary information that open perspectives for the protégé; by giving financially, sometimes sacrificially to further the protégé's ministry; by co-ministering in order to increase the credibility, status and prestige of the protégé; and by having the freedom to allow and even promote the protégé beyond the mentor's own level of leadership.
- Bobby Clinton in The Making of a Leader

Remember SPACE people - you are *supposed* to do more than SPACE imagines.
