Deborah Heiser

Deborah Heiser is the founder and CEO of The Mentor Project™, which brings experts to mentor students around the world for free. She is an applied developmental psychologist, a TEDx speaker, and a Psychology Today contributor, specializing in midlife and beyond. Her research covers a wide range of topics related to aging, including depression identification, dementia, and frailty with grants awarded from NIA/NIH and Pfizer.

A frequent expert guest for syndicated and local talk radio shows, Deborah contends that our most precious natural resources are not coal, oil and gas, but intellect, expertise, and skills. She is a proponent of utilizing our world experts through mentorship, and firmly believes that we are all built to give back.

In this keynote speech at the Celebration of Mentoring at Massachusetts General Hospital event, Deborah Heiser explains the features and benefits of Lateral Mentoring. While most people think of mentoring as a mentee seeking guidance from someone directly above them in an organization, Deborah contends that some of the most effective mentoring is lateral, and that the benefits of such mentoring often exceed expectations.
