Mentoring Top Talent

This recent article in the Harvard Business Review details a study that delves into the dynamics of a successful mentoring relationship.  The authors focus on four main topics:

  1. Perceptual Affirmation, or taking the time to see the mentee for who they are,
  2. Behavioral Affirmation, or helping the mentee on their path,
  3. The importance of the mentor keeping their ego in check,
  4. Helping the mentee stay in alignment with their highest self.

While the article is written from the perspective of the traditional mentor/mentee relationship in a corporate setting, anyone who has mentored a startup will recognize the parallels.

It’s a quick read, and well worth the effort if you are currently a mentor or a mentee.
