Great Leadership With Jacob Morgan

Every employee inside of your organization has something to offer regardless of the generation they're from or the stage of life they are in. This is why mentoring can flow both ways, with younger employees mentoring older employees or with older employees mentoring younger employees.

In the old days, we always had the older and more experienced people mentor younger people. But in this new world of work, we're starting to see that mentoring can go both ways.

When mentoring goes the other way, meaning a younger employee is mentoring an older employee, we refer to this as reverse mentoring.

Reverse mentoring is not only a great way to build trust and collaboration, but it's a wonderful way to share ideas inside of organizations. Reverse mentoring can help break through generational stereotypes that might exist inside your company.
