Strong mentors help us grow, but does this mean they only help when we’re learning the ropes? As new trends and technology evolve our workplaces, the scope of mentorships — and who benefits from them — also expands. Enter “reverse mentoring,” a concept that first gained traction at the turn of the century.
What is reverse mentoring?
Through this practice, younger employees use their knowledge to help managers and executives cultivate agility and lead with confidence. From insight on emerging workplace issues to tech and more, the advantages of these programs are vast.
During the Great Resignation, the power of reverse mentoring is just as momentous as it was 20 years ago. And by building and maintaining the right program, you’ll have the ability to empower your entire workforce for generations to come.
