If you're like many professionals, you have heard that you need a mentor. But if your organization doesn't have a formal program, what can you do? If your organization does have a program, how can you make sure you're taking full advantage of the opportunity? Join us for this members-only Ask-a-Coach session with Jenn Labin, author of Mentoring Programs That Work, for an interactive discussion on mentoring from a mentee's point of view.

Topics that will be discussed include:

  • why it is valuable to have a mentor
  • best sources for finding a mentor
  • how to approach a potential mentor
  • the most effective ways to work with a mentor outside of a formal mentoring program
  • best practices for working with a mentor within a formal program.
