Mentoring Done Right: Everybody Wins! Part 2

Radiocasts | July 9, 2014 by Bonnie D. Graham

The buzz: Mentoring.

By definition, mentoring involves a more experienced or knowledgeable person guiding and teaching  someone less experienced or knowledgeable for personal and/or professional development. In practice, there’s a lot more to mentoring.

Reality check: Is your company encouraging mentors for only a privileged few, perhaps mostly males, or for a broader employee population? Are your mentoring practices building a diverse leadership to support your growth or are you merely cloning selected stereotypes? A lot to consider.

The experts speak.

Sherryanne Meyer, Air Products and Chemicals, and ASUG: “The true sign of intelligence is not knowledge, but imagination.” (Albert Einstein)

Sarah Cooke, Great Place to Work: “Knowledge is knowing a tomato is a fruit. Wisdom is knowing not to put it in a fruit salad.” (Miles Kington, UK’s The Independent daily columnist for 20+ years and the inventor of Franglais)

Meaghan Sullivan, SAP: “I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.” (Maya Angelou)
