Last week, Quartz at Work wrote a great article about the benefits of reverse mentoring.
“The concept of reverse mentoring was popularized in the late 1990s by former GE chief Jack Welch. He saw the way that the internet was transforming business, and he recognized that GE’s youngest employees had a lot to teach its executives. So he flipped the normal mentoring relationship on its head, pairing 500 senior leaders with new hires to meet regularly and learn about emerging tools and technologies.”
The article highlights 4 ways reverse mentoring can benefit leaders, regardless of what sector they work in:
Diversity and inclusion
Cryptocurrency and blockchain
