Treat mentees the same as addictsWednesday 02 December 2015

The financial entrepreneur, activist and former alcoholic offers his advice for mentoring in business. Mentoring should be approached in the same way as treatment for addicts going through rehabilitation – without judgment and by allowing people to make mistakes – according to former alcoholic and high-flying business leader Ivan Massow.
Massow has experienced serious failures in his business career, including the loss of his multi-million pound financial advisory company in 2002. Its collapse eventually saw him flee to Spain and fall into alcoholism. But, he says, having a mentor throughout this period proved to be invaluable, giving him important advice and guidance during successful and more difficult periods alike.
