Great Leaders Need Great Mentors

88,025 views

Published on

Every great leader had or has a great mentor. And every leader should sooner or later act as a mentor. Why? In mentoring and in teaching you as the mentor will also learn and develop. At the same time learning and growing will eventually enable your mentee to become a teacher and mentor herself.

Steve Jobs e.g. often asked his mentor Bill Campbell for advice whilst those who credit Jobs as a mentor include Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg and Larry Page of Google. Since there is a contributing and receiving end in the mentoring process, I´m a big fan and user of this beautiful concept.

Learn all about Mentoring in this very comprehensive and succinct presentation by Andreas von der Heydt who is a senior executive at a leading tech company, a leadership expert, executive coach, and mentoring aficionado.
