Innovations in Talent Development, Mentoring and Sponsorship
While Mentorship and Sponsorship are uniquely different, they are both imperative for driving talent development. The mentor-mentee is a two-way, give-and-take relationship. A sponsor is less about the details of professional development as the sponsor is a professional champion.

    • Safe Professional Space
      • Be authentic, vulnerable
      • Different perspective re: "criticism"
      • New window(s) on opportunity
    • Listening: Hold, Deep, Participatory
    • Mentee: Set Goals, Pace, Tone
      • Ambition is not a dirty word
      • Career goals v. life aspirations
    • Mentor:
      • Commitment to assist
      • Active interest in the mentee as an individual
      • Value of your own professional (& personal) experience
    • Give-&-Get: mutual trust, respect & nurturing
    • Time-bound
  • Mentoring: Take Action: Launching a women’s mentoring group: for women, by women
  • Cross-Purposes of Mentorship & Sponsorship:
    • Talent: Identify, develop, promote
    • Mentors can evolve into sponsors
