2020 Mentorship Program One On One Schedule
Mentoring is a relationship between two people with the goal of professional and personal development. The "Mentor" is an experienced individual who shares knowledge, experience, and advice with a less experienced person, known as the “mentee."
Mentors become trusted advisers and role models – people who have "been there" and "done that." They support and encourage their mentees by offering suggestions and knowledge, both general and specific.
A mentoring partnership may be between two people within the same company, the same industry, or the same networking organization. However the partners come together, the relationship should be based on generally mutual trust and respect, and it typically offers personal and professional advantages for both parties. The primary purpose of the Mentoring Program is to lead individuals into their destiny by equipping them with strategy skills. Mentees are shown how to maintain levels of Commitment, Motivation, Inspiration and Excellence.
