WiT Mentoring Program - Mentor Workshop
How can we develop individuals’ mindsets and capabilities to unlock, create and capture value so they can apply it to their life and career?
We know you have the ambition and focus to achieve success and tap into a network of amazing people who are, founders, managers, students, executives to advance, empower and connect.
It is through your lived experience that you will be able to provide support along the 12-week interactive journey to help your Mentee unpack their greatest asset – themselves!
The program cultivates what we call a ‘community of practice’ by facilitating offline and online connection for mentees to explore their focus and direction with their mentors.
What will be covered in the workshop:
- Introduction to the program
- Roles & responsibilities of Mentors
- Mental models – enablers and blockers
- Guiding and supporting mentees
- Business model you canvas
- Goals for program
The success of this program is built with your passion, generosity of time and spirit. In addition to helping individuals develop and succeed, you will also have a great time connecting with like-minded professionals who are passionate about fostering and developing others.
After completion of the workshop, there will be moments to come together and connect as well as share your stories and journey with a concluding breakfast event.
