Simon Sinek: Why Reciprocity Improves Mentor Mentee Relationships

At This Moment in Your Life, Where Are You Seeking Advice and Coaching?" Sinek notes how he is taking an approach to better balance mentor-mentee relationships in his life. Specifically, he chooses to mentor someone only if it is a reciprocal relationship, i.e. the mentee also plays a mentor role and vice versa.

The bottom-line is that there is always time to accomplish the things you want to do; you just have to commit yourself to accomplishing them. Also, when dealing with human beings a much smarter man once told me, "without genuine concern you will fail!" Genuine concern is a two-way street and that is what builds meaningful and lasting change, no matter the outcome you seek.

Stay Oriented!
