Mentorship has been around for centuries, but the approach to mentorship has evolved over time. The traditional approach to mentorship, also known as old school mentorship, involves a one-on-one relationship between a mentor and mentee. The mentor is often an experienced and senior professional who guides and advises the mentee in their personal and professional growth. However, with the rise of technology and diverse networks, a new school of mentorship has emerged. This approach encourages more interactive, reciprocal, and adaptable mentoring relationships that are not solely based on hierarchical structures. In this blog post, we will explore the main differences between old school and new school mentorship and the benefits and drawbacks of each approach.
