Mentors and Sponsors

17 Apr

By now most of you have become familiar with Sheryl Sandberg’s comments about the need for to women to “Lean In” to become corporate executives.  The video on TED is well worth the 16 minute investment.  The reviews of Lean In: Women, Work and the Will to Lead at Amazon are fascinating (please don’t’ bother to read all 200+).


Her comments and book have raised an interesting issue:  the difference between mentors and sponsors.  The New York Times recently had an interesting article on this topic.  It’s a good read – food for thought.
