If mentor-protege relationships have gone the way of the mainframe computer, where does that leave those of us who seek guidance?

Once upon a time, mentors and coaches were assigned to employees. Workers were given a very clear road map to follow, and the definitions of success were clear (even if some of them were crazy).

This kind of defined structure scarcely exists anymore, for a few reasons. Employee tenure has consistently become shorter, which makes getting advice or help from one’s company less practical than ever. In addition, middle management has been slashed, and there are fewer folks with enough bandwidth to help. Competition is fierce, and in some cases, people worry about training their own replacement, someone the company may view as newer and less expensive. With people concerned about making themselves redundant, there’s no longer an opportunity to receive years of coaching from one boss. This shift away from internal coaching is only going to be exacerbated by further shrinkages in employee tenure, and location will matter less as more people work remotely and become more entrepreneurial (either starting their own companies or becoming freelancers). Also, mentoring seldom exists at under-resourced, fast-paced startups.

Useful tips for giving good feedback to staff | Engaged Leadership | Scoop.it

Via Progressive training
Dustin Netral's insight:

In a recent nationwide poll it was discovered that 82% of associates have not been given feedback within the 7 days leading up to the poll.

 

If I do a good job, shouldn't it be recognized so that I may repeat the good behavior?

 

If I have an opportunity for improvement shouldn't I have a chance to correct it?
