Why Reciprocity Improves Mentor Mentee Relationships

Description

In Chapter 12 of 16 in his 2012 Capture Your Flag interview, author and public speaker Simon 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. Simon Sinek teaches leaders and organizations how to inspire people. His goal is to "inspire people to do the things that inspire them".
