When it comes to work, everyone needs advice. And we all know that finding a mentor is valuable.
In an in-depth study of professional service firms, Harvard Business School professor Thomas DeLong and his colleagues noted “Junior professionals joining a firm 20 years ago could count on the partners treating them like protégés.” Today job turnover, layoffs, and increased bottom-line pressures have taken a hatchet to that “implicit agreement.”
Professional success requires a myriad of skills, knowledge, and abilities, more than we can learn and refine on our own. Join us as we discuss the different types of mentors that have helped this panel along their career paths, the difference between Champions and Mentors and the characteristics of each and how our panelists have benefited from these relationships over their careers.
At the end of the program, attendees will be able to understand and identify:
- Types of Mentors
- Characteristics of a Good Mentor
- Benefits of being a Mentor and a Mentee - to you and your organization
- Jennifer Bonesteel - Manager, Regional Business Development at Littler Mendelson
