A Powerful Tool
Every great leader had or has a great mentor. And every leader should sooner or later act as a mentor. Why? In mentoring and in teaching, you as the mentor will also learn and develop. At the same time learning and growing will eventually enable your mentee to become a teacher and mentor too.
The WHIMA Mentor Program is part of an overall leadership development program for members. Mentoring is a powerful tool that allows WHIMA membership to draw on the wisdom within the organization and learn from each other.
Who Can Participate?
A mentor is a seasoned veteran in their field, and a member of WHIMA who is willing to share their guidance and answer questions. Mentors are able to indicate their area of mentorship and the length of time available to mentor. Furthermore you will have the freedom to choose how many mentees you would like to help. The goal is to help one another, not to be an inconvenience. Your chosen Mentee and you will work out the best plan for communication to be successful.
