What is modern mentoring?

Find me on:

Modern mentoring goes beyond the traditional one-to-one mentoring model that pairs a senior member of the organization with a junior member. Instead, modern mentoring encompasses a wide variety of models and philosophies, such as reverse mentoring, speed mentoring, and situational mentoring (just to name a few).

Technology often plays a role in modern mentoring. For example, a mentor and mentoree might meet via Skype. The rules are often more casual as well. In a traditional one-to-one model, mentors and mentorees meet weekly or bi-weekly, in person, for nine to 12 months. In modern mentoring models, the mentoring is often completed more quickly, sometimes even within a couple of hours.
