Learning with the customers and employees of the future!

We support you in setting up and implementing reverse mentoring programs.

The tasks of managers are becoming more complex: motivating, promoting, digitizing, competing against startups and tech corporations - and developing themselves and the company in the process.

Reverse Mentoring helps with the core issues:


  • Understanding tomorrow's customers

  • Create social media and technology savvy

  • Developing an open feedback culture

  • Interpreting New Work and the requirements of digital talents

Are you interested in our Reverse Mentoring program?

We have several years of experience with a wide variety of organizations of different sizes and would be happy to support you in the implementation. In addition to conceptual support, we bring in our matching tool as well as inspiring digital natives with reverse mentoring experience.


Reverse Mentoring turns classic mentoring on its head. Here, the 'digital immigrants', i.e. those born before 1981, learn from the 'digital natives'. These can be junior staff, people just starting their careers or simply young employees. They have already absorbed technological developments with their mother's milk. Digital Natives set the pace in the markets and, with their changed habits, are a major reason why conventional business models that have been in place for many decades are coming under increasing attack. In addition, digital natives are an extremly relevant traget group due to strong and increasing consumer behavior.


Reverse Mentoring helpt to better understand the future. Because you learn from and with the customers and employees of the future.

Reverse Mentoring is more than just an exchange on digitization: It promotes cultural change in the company with the aim of anchoring digital know-how and a new mindset in the organization. It is not about theoretical knowledge, colorful beanbags and beautiful posters in the lobby, but about a lively exchange, getting to know th perspectives of different generations.

Reverse mentoring process:


One manager and one digital native form a 'tandem' for the duration of the program, which lasts six to twelve months. In addition to internal talents, the use of external digital natives is also cruical to success. They provide additional impetus and are more open/direct in their feedback.


To get a perfect match, the respective interests as well as supply and demand are specified in a profile - similar to a dating app. These information can then be used to match the tandems. With us, this is done AI-supported on request, with the DIGITAL8 matching software.


A kickoff event helps as an 'icebreaker' for the tandems and offers the first opportunity to get to know each other and exchange ideas. The organizational framework, goals and initial focus topics are defined.


Approximately 2 meetings per quarter take place over a period of 6-18 months. Video exchange, meeting at events or classic shadowing are further options. A closing event with all participants rounds off the program.
