Mentors and Sponsors—they’re two terms that have become buzzwords about talent development in corporate America. But what exactly is the difference between them? More importantly, how do you know which one you need—and can you have more than one?
The New York Times cited that sponsors are seen as crucial for women’s career advancement. The article further explained the difference between mentors and sponsors, noting that women need to “acquire a sponsor- a powerfully positioned champion, [where as] mentorship is a relatively loose relationship.” Our stellar panelist will discuss their experience and provide the essentials for leadership development from a female and male perspective.
Our next Stand Up Professional Development Boot Camp Series will serve as a primer, giving attendees an easy-to-understand definition of mentoring and sponsorship and how to pave your path to success! Attendees will discover:
- The difference between someone who talks with you or to you and talks about you
- Why the cross-cultural component of both is critical to promotion rates and valuable to senior executives serving as mentors
- Why networking is important and how to make it fit into the overall talent-development model
- Why having more than one mentor and sponsor makes you career-savvy
