Earlier this year, at World Economic Forum Annual Meeting in Davos, I got the opportunity to meet Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg and Wharton Professor Adam Grant. They briefly mentioned Option B, their soon-to-be released book on resilience. Thereafter, on the top of Rinerhorn (Magic Mountain), with temperature nearing -23 degrees, I asked Adam some questions on building meaningful mentor-mentee relationships. His answers were pointed, thought-provoking and reflective.
Recently Adam delivered a commencement speech at USU where he shares advice that every graduating student and young professional must keep in mind. Parts of his speech draw upon some of his insights from that day in Davos. Dots have an interesting way of connecting.
