As promised, I wanted to share the results of our completely unscientific poll on reverse mentoring.
Clearly, people are open to being mentored by someone younger in age. Which again prompts the question: Why call it reverse mentoring? I’d suggest out of respect for the person in the mentor role…let’s just call them such. Age is no longer a part of the mentoring equation. It’s about expertise.
Speaking of the criteria for selecting a mentor, check out Alexandra Levit’s latest post on the Intuit blog. She talks about what you should look for in a mentoring relationship. There are some nice tips to consider.
Thanks to everyone who participated in the survey!
