Creating a Mentoring Culture

When Odysseus, King of Ithaca, went off to fight in the Trojan War, he requested his good friend Mentor to care for and educate his son. Today, a mentor is a trusted friend, counsellor or teacher—often all three — and mentoring has grown into an organized concept encouraged and endorsed in the workplace. The success of mentorship programs, not only at work but also in schools and communities, has led to a new crop of mentoring groups and networks. The result is that you’ll now find prominent people—including the Chair of Google and a Brazilian soccer star —taking time out to mentor.

Make. Work. Better.
