A few months ago, I had a surprise call from a 22 year old young man named Bailey. We chatted for a moment and then he got to the point; “The reason I am calling you is to ask if you would mentor me?” I hadn’t previously mentored a person from Generation Z, but felt a strange prompt to connect with Bailey and agreed to meet with him.
