Book Description:

Reverse mentoring has been doing the rounds in the corporate world for some years now, where it is used to introduce senior management to new technology and social media as business tools. Yet this only scratches the surface of what reverse mentoring can achieve.

Throwing two generations together in a reverse mentoring relationship creates one of the most powerful problem solving dynamics at our disposal. It also provides a means for lifelong learning and controlled imagination. Most importantly, it can act as a key step in the character development of both participants and an opportunity for both to reflect on their true purpose in life.

MENTORING REVERSED demonstrates how, through reverse mentoring, it is possible to build a deep understanding across generations and embed the values of diversity, humility, creativity and imagination into the culture of any organisation.
