GET REAL

Donna's blog on coaching, leadership, and life

Who’s mentoring whom?

I was having a conversation with seasoned professionals about young professionals, and the subject shifted to mentoring. I find it interesting that there’s often an assumption that the seasoned professional would serve as mentor to the young professional.

Although I thoroughly enjoy sharing my expertise with young individuals who are newer to the business environment, I often find that the real value is in what I learn from them. —How to thrive comfortably in a high-tech environment, creating yet more opportunities to apply technology to day-to-day communications and business. —A fresh perspective of the needs and consumer trends of professionals in our current business environment. —A better appreciation for the benefits of the transient employee culture of the new millenium. I could go on, but you get the idea.

Regardless of how experienced or inexperienced we may see ourselves, we have a great deal to offer one another.
