Leading by Example: Building Successful Mentorship Programs, Relationships, and Skills

Track: Strategic Management

Session Number: 1037
Date: Thu, Aug 9th, 2018
Time: 1:15 PM - 2:45 PM

Description:

Join Tracey and Lesli as they discuss various mentorship techniques that can help you further your leadership skills and in-turn help others. Mentorship can entail anything from finding a one-on-one mentor/mentee relationship within your chapter; setting up a mentorship program for your chapter; job shadowing others in your organization, region or sector to expand your knowledge and competency in the prospect development and fundraising fields; and learning to become an excellent mentor/mentee yourself.
Both Tracey and Lesli have been involved with successful mentorship programs, have been mentors for many years, and will offer tips and techniques how you can establish successful mentor/mentee relationships within your chapter and externally as well.
You’ve heard that fundraising is all about relationships – well, that goes for prospect development and fundraising staff as well; it’s not just for donors!
This session will also “open the floor” to attendees to bring their own ideas and challenges to building successful mentorship opportunities to develop careers and expertise.
