I do not have a unified theory or philosophy for my mentoring approach or style. How mentoring plays out depends on many factors.
But -- here are some of the main themes, inspirations, and aspirations:

a) knowledge is a flame that can spread - we are not diminished - but can be stronger together. so why be stingy??
b) "It is not your responsibility to finish the work [of perfecting the world], but you are not free to desist from it either" (Pirkei Avot 2:16) - the work will have to carry on when we are gone.
c) "who is wise, they who learn from all people" (~Pirkei Avot 4:1) - so do not work alone.
d) Fred Brancati was a great mentor to me during my post-doctoral training. I am inspired by his memory and hope he would be proud of me.
