The workplace is changing, but the need for good counsel remains. Traditional mentorship, like the internal coaching model lauded by previous generations, has become more myth than method. The modern world is faster, busier and ever-changing, and this has led to big shifts in the business world. People switch jobs more often, work remotely, receive little training and guard their expertise like state secrets in the face of competition.
We’ve entered the age of the startup. Entrepreneurs rule the business landscape, while artisans, makers and developers redefine the next big thing. Careers are no longer based on a single expertise but have instead become hybrids of technical knowledge, management know-how and skill sets adaptable to evolving budgets and priorities. Because of this, mentorships must also become an amalgamation of teaching, consulting, sponsoring and coaching.
