Join ASAE CareerHQ.org and Carol Ann Lloyd Stanger of Bright Torch Communications for a special program to learn about mentoring and how to empower yourself throughout the process!
Many successful executives identify mentoring as a key factor in professional development. Those who participate in mentoring programs describe positive, meaningful exchanges that provide insight and direction. One study even associated mentorship with significant salary increases.
So how can you help ensure your mentoring experience will yield rewards? Since the mentor is the seasoned, experienced party in the relationship, mentees often put themselves in passive roles and simply wait to be told what to do. But really effective mentoring can only occur when both mentor and mentee take responsibility for its success.
As the mentee, you have the opportunity to play a key role in setting the goals for the experience, establishing the focus of particular discussions, and identifying and working toward particular outcomes.
This program will help you:Articulate primary goals for mentoring,
Develop strategies for asking good questions,
Identify how mentoring fits into a larger professional development plan, and
Create an action plan.
