SGMP Sacramento Chapter Meeting

"Ready, Set, Grow! A Mentoring Panel Discussion"

Wednesday, March 1, 2017
Please note this program is on a Wednesday!
DoubleTree by Hilton Sacramento
2001 Point West Way, Sacramento, CA 95815

Panel Moderator: Garland Preddy, CGMP, SGMP Education & Training Director

Having a mentor can provide an edge in today’s complex and often highly competitive world and is the key for developing and sustaining a satisfying professional career. Serving in the role of an advocate, a mentor can help a mentee navigate the terrain of a specific industry, providing knowledgeable and strategic advice, helping to empower, motivate, and build confidence. Organizations committed to mentoring report the ability to manage change more effectively, prepare the next line of leadership, and attract the most qualified of candidates.

Consider the potential:
-- Increased retention
-- Improved job performance
-- Higher quality and productivity
-- Leaders ready to take the next step
-- Broader understanding of the organization
-- Stronger sense of community

The impact of mentoring is undeniable – for the organization and the individual. A productive mentoring relationship offers both the mentor and mentee an opportunity to discover untapped potential, it can build on disciplines, help to develop strengths and overcome weaknesses, and broaden perspective and objectivity for both parties. Whether a formal or informal mentor relationship, these collaborations can transform lives.

Join us for a lively panel discussion featuring senior level executives who will share powerful stories of the impact mentoring has had on their personal and professional lives. Learn how to find a mentor or become a mentor and the many benefits to both. Discover strategies in developing a high-quality mentoring program for your teams and hear how to make the most of your mentoring relationship.

Registration begins at: 4:15 p.m. with the meeting scheduled from 4:45 – 6:30 p.m.
We look forward to seeing you there. Please register as soon as possible.
