Afternoons with Kelly Higgins-Devine on ABC
Posted on Thursday 17th September 2015
We're used to thinking of mentoring as a top-down approach. That the older, wiser generation will teach the younger one the way of the world.
But the workplaces of today are very different spaces to those of twenty years ago - and with technology in constant flux and four generations sharing the working landscape, that mentoring process may be becoming a two-way street.
But when the tables are turned, and the younger person is doing the mentoring - how does the relationship change?
Edwin Trevor-Roberts, Michael Sherlock, and Tim Bambrick joined Kelly Higgins-Devine to discuss the benefits and complexities of reverse mentoring.
