Reverse Mentoring Cracks Workplace

Reverse Mentoring Cracks Workplace | Leading Choices | Scoop.it
In an effort to school senior executives in technology, social media and the latest workplace trends, many businesses are pairing upper management with younger employees in a practice known as reverse mentoring.

Brian Jones's curator insight, October 13, 2014 8:26 PM

The strategy of reverse mentoring has made its way into top performing companies. The success of reverse mentoring depends upon the mentoring culture of the organization. Researcher Lois Zanchary claims that a true mentorship works both ways. The mentor should get as much out of the relationship as the mentee. I have found the when reverse mentoring takes place it usually involves knowledge of content such as technology. The older experienced mentor can offer skill sets about the process of being successful, such as how to delegate, manage time, prioritize, dealing with unions, incompetent employees, etc. Regardless of the topic or skill being taught, it should not matter who is the mentor and who is the mentee. Age should not enter the picture. During my time in Atlanta, while presenting to companies in the importance of mentoring in their organization, I was surprised to learn about the fear of establishing a mentoring program because that might mean that a new employee grows to out job their experienced colleague, causing the older employee to become obsolete in the organization. Truly a lack of trust encompasses the organization.

Life choices are always present. Whether we actively or passively
make them, they happen. Sometimes, they happen to us. Other times, they
happen for us. The best time is when we actively make them ourselves.

 

Our ramp-up years can be classified as being between 21 and 41. Many life
decisions happen during this time, and it may be the first time that we
are really on our own. We are out of college, and our life is unfolding
in front of us.
