Two leaders, two days.
Yesterday I sat with a mentor in my life. Someone I observe often.
It was of huge value early in my career
There plenty of great mentoring programs out there
But what I’m talking about isn’t formal
Was with another brilliant professional today
In their sector they were unmatched and the sun is setting on their working life
But they didn’t build a successor. No direct mentoring at all.
And now a professional legacy is dying. What a waste.
So! Hot shot. Start today.
40 year old Directors. Start today.
DON’T SAY “can I pick your brain”
– that’s what zombies do
“Can I listen and learn”
I know, it’s hard for me to shut up too.
