Build Your Job Skills With Reverse Mentoring

Most people think of mentors as people who have more work and life experience than they do and can show them the ropes of a profession or company and introduce them to the right people as they develop their careers. But over on the Past 5 blog, there's an interesting post about the importance of reverse mentoring and how post 40 baby boomers can improve their technology skills and marketability by learning from the 20 something millenials.

It's never too late to learn a new skill or technology that will help benefit you and your career and you might just realize that there's not such a big difference between you and your younger colleagues.

  • This is really good advice. I'd also extend this a bit and suggest that just because the technology or method to do something exists doesn't mean it will automatically work for you.

    Evaluating how the tool will help you in your work (and everyone else but you using the tool is a good reason to learn it!) will be the key to making yourself more productive.
