Podcast #2: Mentoring Brilliant People
There was so much more (and still is!) to this idea from the blog post a couple months ago, that it deserved some extended time and another mind involved. So this week Karl and I chat together some of the more involved topics surrounding the opportunity in mentoring brilliant people.There are some absolutely brilliant insights that come out of this, pun intended and all. Ideas like disarming the intimidation, that the mentee chooses the mentor, reducing hierarchical relationships, and more.
The mentor is sought as one who has the skillset to give the mentee space; it allows mentees to identify their own gaps, empowering them and learning forward more powerfully than simply giving the facts.
