It’s a muscle that gets stronger with practice and belief in ourselves. Read more and watch a video of LinkedIn founder Reid Hoffman on becoming more resilient. >>

50 Shades of Mentoring and 4 Ways to Succeed

The mentee, having never been in a mentoring relationship, comes to it looking for advice about how to solve day-to-day problems.

Both mentor and mentee are participating in the relationship with differing assumptions driving their interaction.
