MENTORING: How to give and get good advice

The differences between giving discrete advice, counsel, coaching, and mentoring are described in this lengthy article by two professors at Harvard Business School.  Hurdles for the experienced manager in giving advice are explored, as well as reasons why it is hard to seek good advice.  A sidebar story contains a brief interview of William Lee, a noted intellectual property attorney, on the topic of his advising style, and how to listen.  A graphic itemizes “what advisers can do.”
