Duration: 1 hour
In the past, mentoring was primarily about educating and training employees to climb the corporate ladder within a single company. While the model of an “ideal career” has changed dramatically, mentoring practices largely haven’t. The problem is compounded by the fact that many mid-level and senior executives feel trapped in a less than ideal career themselves.
Key concepts covered in this webinar include:
- The difference between a sponsor and a mentor — and why you can’t be both
- How to define success outside the traditional measures of salary and position
- How to connect personality, passions and strengths into a real career path
- Why your most talented protégés are at greatest risk of career implosion
- The assumptions that sabotage retention efforts, especially with women
Target audience: Managers and protégés looking to maximize the mentoring relationship
