Lew Sauderabout this book: Roger is a baby boomer with a problem. He has hired a bright young man named Phil to work for his company. But Phil doesn't seem to understand what it's like to work in the real world of business. He also seems to have his nose buried in his smart phone all the time. Roger decides that he will need to mentor Phil.
But along the way, he learns that, as a millennial, Phil has a few skills that he can teach to Roger.
The Reluctant Mentor is an easy to read and entertaining business parable about the generational conflict that inevitably occurs in the business world. However, people are learning that mentoring is no longer strictly about the older workers teaching the younger ones based on their extensive experience. The millennial generation has never known a world without mobile phones and internet. As a result, they have an intuitive comfort level with technology that their older counterparts often lack.
The Reluctant Mentor demonstrates how each generation has a skill set that they can share with each other to make for a more productive and cohesive business environment.
