Patrice Gordon is a reverse mentoring guru, whose efforts to build an inclusive environment at Virgin Atlantic have been recognised by her boss Richard Branson, and internationally by the TED Talk leadership community.
In this episode, Newton co-founder Andy Hawes sits down with Patrice to talk about what it takes to excel at reverse mentoring.
How can Andy, who found the process both illuminating and challenging, ensure that reverse mentoring is truly successful? What does ‘good’ really look like? Should the experience, as Andy asks, be scary to actually work? And, ultimately, does the success of reverse mentoring lie in how vulnerable leaders allow themselves to be?
Newton is an implementation-focussed consultancy with a difference, brimming with people who have a passion for cracking really knotty problems.
