Bridging Differences for Better Mentoring
Lean Forward, Learn, Leverage. This comprehensive guide to helping mentors and mentees bridge gaps between and among cultures—a growing issue in today’s diverse workplace—is coauthored by the founder and CEO of the Center for Mentoring Excellence.
As the workplace has become more diverse, mentoring has become more challenging. Mentors and mentees may come from very different backgrounds and have limited understanding of each other’s cultures and outlooks. But mentoring remains the most powerful tool for creating meaningful relationships, furthering professional development, and increasing engagement and retention. Younger workers and emerging leaders, in particular, are demanding it.
