Driving Your Career Forward – Mentors, Sponsors, Coaches

The work rules have changed. It is no longer how quickly you can move up the ladder or that by doing good work, you will be noticed and promoted. It is all about building up your portfolio of valuable experiences and assignments that accelerate your learning, your performance, your network and your future opportunities. And you need others to support you in your career – “a board of advisors” who provide advice, access to assignments, feedback, and accountability support.

In this inspiring session, workshop presenters, Ellen Keiley & Carol Salloway, will cover the new realities and the actions you can take to increase your value and career potential. Learn the difference between mentoring, sponsorship, and coaching and how each of these three activities are important for your talent and career development. You will leave with some clear next steps to drive your career forward!
