WiT NEW AND EXCITING Mentoring Program Launch!
Join us and unlock, create and capture value and apply it to your life and career
We invite you to join us for a networking evening to hear about our 2018 Mentoring Program which has been designed to unlock, create and capture value and apply it to your life and career. The event will also feature a special keynote address on the 'Future of Work' (speaker to be announced shortly).
This 12 week program is delivered in partnership with Business Models Inc an international strategy and business design agency helping organisations design better businesses and who posses unique capabilities in designing and facilitating strategic conversations and emphasising ‘action orientation’.
We have developed canvases and tools that optimise workshop time and are helpful visual aids for participants. The workshop content will rely on an extensive library of human-centred tools, approaches and methods developed over time. Whether participants are great at talking but resistant to writing, or quiet communicators but brilliant ideators, we are able to employ the right workshop method.
Creating a Community of Practice we will host mentors and mentees online and offline in a social environment to build a deeper ‘community of practice’. We have developed structured activities to guide participants and build serendipity throughout. We will also dive into the mental models including blockers and enablers.
A successful mentoring program is a two-way street that respects the time and value of a mentor, while ensuring alignment between the roles and responsibilities of both the mentor and mentee. This is a unique partnership built on trust and must ensure clear communication of expectations, objectives and timeframes upfront.
