Christmas and the turn of the year are a time for reflection. The last few years have been demanding for all of us in many respects, both in business and in our private lives. We would like to thank you, dear readers, dear business partners and especially our experts, our colleagues and our editors for your continued support and the always high level of interest in our interviews, professional articles and podcasts.
Mentorship seems to be on everyone's lips at the moment, despite it being basically nothing new. And indeed, one mentorship model is disrupting the classic old-teach-young method. It's known as "reverse mentoring" and with this the Golf generation learns from the zoomers, the boomers from the millennials - vice versa and across departments. At companies like Microsoft, the CTOs learn from the next generation, they say.
For our first podcast of the new year, we had an extremely inspiring conversation with Thomas Fuchs. He is the founder, head, and soul of QX-Quarterly Crossing, a globally unique excellence network for experienced and future leaders. Since its establishment in 1995, he has designed international recruiting formats and talent development programs for global players in a wide range of industries and has accompanied careers all the way to top management. It brings together thought leaders, role models and top talents, thereby creating the conditions for optimal personal and professional realization.
