mentoring ideas

Every now and then, we like to share the latest articles we've been reading online about mentoring, coaching, leadership development, and so forth.

Here's the latest link roundup filled with great mentoring ideas and other interesting stories.

We love reading first-hand accounts from mentors. The Huffington Post recently published "Why I Mentor," and author Jeff Wald doesn't disappoint. One of his main reasons for saying yes to his mentee? She was the first to ask.

For our readers who work in human resources, talent management, and recruitment, check out the 17 weird interview questions from Apple, Google, and other top companies. (Our favorite: From Google, for an engineer position: "Choose a city and estimate how many piano tuners operate a business there.")

Mentoring is embraced in organizations large and small, from Wall Street to Madison Avenue, as this Adweek article explains in "Why Mentoring Is More Important Today Than Ever for the Well-Being of Agencies."

Even le grand fromage can still benefit from being mentored. Don't believe us? Read Entrepreneur's "Why CEOs Need Mentors—They Accelerate Learning."

And we'll end on this note. We loved this article in Forbes: "Why Mentoring Should Be A Power Woman's Next Status Accessory." Favorite quote: "Mentoring is a two-way street; mutually beneficial to both partners."
