Back to the Future
Introducing "Back to the future": a reverse mentoring methodology that represents the future of learning
It’s no secret that technological change continues to accelerate at a pace that is now faster than anything we have seen before and yet we find companies are still providing traditional methods of training to their young workforce. Graduates joining companies are more than likely to have surpassed some executives especially when it comes to Digital Technologies, Green Technologies, Hyperconnectivity, Wellness and so much more.
“We believe it’s time to go back into the future”
and prepare organisations to flip the script on what it means to be a leader in this new era of transformation. At Panthea, we have developed a customised five-step process for our Reverse Mentoring Methodology, tailored to each organisation's specific needs and requirements.
What is reverse mentoring?
Reverse mentoring is a concept where younger employees mentor more experienced, senior leaders. The concept itself was first introduced by Jack Welch, the former CEO of General Electric, late in the 1990’s and has since gained popularity as organisations realise the impact it has on their workforce.
Proven Benefits of applying a Reverse Mentoring Methodology in your organisation:
- It fosters the sharing of knowledge and collaboration among different generations within your organisation, unlocking the potential for creativity and innovation.
- By promoting a culture of continuous learning, you can differentiate your company and shape your strategy to keep up with the pace of change.
- Through this programme, trust and camaraderie are built, paving the way for unprecedented collaboration between young employees and senior executives.
This kind of partnership creates a highly functioning, engaging environment that leads to high performance. Who wouldn't want that? Moreover, this approach supports a diverse, inclusive, and equitable workforce - a must-have in any modern organisation. If you haven't already, now is the time to prioritise diversity and inclusion in your agenda.
