The buzz: Mentoring.
Basic mentoring involves a more experienced or knowledgeable person guiding someone less experienced or knowledgeable for personal or professional development. Time for a pop quiz: Is your company allowing mentors for a privileged few, perhaps mostly males, or for a broader employee population? Are your mentoring practices building a diverse leadership or merely cloning stereotypes? A lot to consider.
The experts speak.
Sherryanne Meyer, Air Products and Chemicals: “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).
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).
