What is an active listener?
Active listening is very important to understand the protégé's thinking. Active listening will take the relationship a long way. Expect to make mistakes and expect to grow and mature through mentoring!
An attempt by a man named Nickelby to obtain his CCIE before he dies :-). Here lies his thoughts and his stories not to forget some Wiresharking here and there and a little StormTrooping along the way. Note that most of the posts here are non-technical but instead focuses on the fun-part, tools and bootcamps for the CCIE certification!
