Lynne Curry, Ph.D., SPHR (CEO of The Growth Company, Inc.) has over 30 years of experience in management consulting and frequently receives questions from clients regarding situations in the workplace. Today, Dr. Curry releases an article directed toward employees looking to acquire excellent mentoring skills.
Dr. Curry responds to a client attempting to mentor an employee 2o years her junior who wants no part of it. “Friday my boss asked me how the mentoring is going and I said, ‘It’s not.’ He asked me ‘why not?’ and I said I’d done my best but ‘you can lead a horse to water but you can’t make him drink.’ My boss said he assigned me “mentoring” because I want a promotion and he thinks I need to learn to develop employees before I can move up. Can you help me figure out how to get out of this?”
