Mentoring in research involves training students to develop certain attributes for success such as self-confidence, self-respect, self-analysis, critical and deep thinking, good work ethic, timeliness, discipline and drive, self-motivation, good behavior with coworkers, good sense of humor, trust and truthfulness as well as good communication and writing skills.

The best way to motivate is by setting good examples and building on success. I strongly believe in the dictum, “Success Succeeds Success”.
