Do you need a reverse mentor?

In my Balancing Act column in The Miami Herald, I wrote of a trend called reverse mentoring. It seems 40-, 50- and 60-somethings realize they need to tap into the tech savvy and workplace attitude of 20-somethings. So, instead of the traditional mentor arrangements, those of us smart enough to know we need to stay current are having informal chats and spontaneous meetings with our younger colleagues. After the column appeared in the paper, I received lots of feedback from colleagues who want me to know they no longer feel any shame in tapping into the expertise of those who are younger.
