Have you heard of “reverse mentoring?” It takes the traditional format of “wise, experienced colleague tutors younger employee” and switches it up to “younger employee shares what he or she knows with an open-minded, more experienced co-worker.” I wrote an article about it on LinkedIn: Reverse Mentoring: When the Sage Learns as Much as the Novice. You can view the article even if you aren’t a member of LinkedIn. This is my first article for that publishing platform and I’d love to know what you think.
Tell me here on The People Equation:
Would you be willing to mentor an older colleague?
Would you like to be mentored by a younger colleague?
