What Happens When You Outgrow Mentors

Introduction to Consulting What Happens When You Outgrow Mentors


Finding the right mentor is one thing, getting rid of the wrong mentor is quite another problem. In this podcast I discuss the relationships I had with 3 of the most influential mentors in my consulting career. I discuss mentors I had when I was an analyst, manager and eventually a partner. Finally, I discuss the difficult choices I had to make when I fundamentally disagreed with a mentor and had to do things which could jeopardize the relationship. Knowing when and how to outgrow a mentor is an oft ignored skill. I have one regret, and that is with the way I managed one mentor relationship.
