Mentoring 6. How to help your mentors
Filed under: Networking, Mentoring, Mature professionals
Posted by: site admin @ 7:35 pm

Today, Joel Shulman sent a valuable idea that
needs wider distribution.  He called it “reverse
mentoring” and I hope it gets traction.

Something that mentors could benefit from is
perspective from their mentees.  Mentors can

  -learn what practices they employ in mentoring
work and what are less effective

   -learn new ways to effectively communicate with
different generations

   -benefit from social networking, twittering, and
the latest digital tools.

So, for those who benefit from working with mentors,
you might be able to help them with new insights or
using new tools.
