Reciprocal Mentorships

In the traditional sense, a mentorship is a “supportive relationship sustained over a period of time, between a novice and an expert.  A relationship where one wiser and more experienced person assists another person to grow, learn and develop his/her vision for the future.”

A reciprocal mentorship assumes that each participant is both novice and expert. Both come to the table willing to teach and willing to learn.

Onboarding Gen Y can establish an internal reciprocal mentorship program in which your new-to-market employees are paired with your more established staff.  Your established staff can help your new Gen Y’s learn important skills, fit within the culture of the organization, and navigate different departments and career paths.  Your new Gen Y’s can help your established staff take a new approach to problem solving, learn new technologies and translate the latest acronyms.

Results will be a fresh perspective for your established staff and increased job satisfaction, a stronger connection to the organization, and more organizational loyalty for your Gen Y employees.
