Reverse Mentoring

The proliferation of technology dividing generations into a two-class society in tech literacy brought about the idea of reverse mentoring where the younger generation coaches their seniors in all things tech. I think the value of the trend points to the truth that younger generations have all kinds of things to teach some of the older generation. Age does not guarantee diverse experience, expertise or wisdom that can be more prevalent in the young. Our education and development and coaching approaches needs to reflect this reality.
