)-- For those interested in career advancement or who are seeking to serve on a board, “How to Find Mentors & Sponsors” provides action-oriented tools for helping women make notable progress towards their professional goals. JJ DiGeronimo, an award-winning author, speaker, and founder of Tech Savvy Women, has developed a four-module online course that’s designed to help guide participants through the process of finding a professional mentor or sponsor.
“Through my work, I meet thousands of businesswomen across the country each year. Aligning to career sponsors and mentors in one of the largest hurdles for women that aspire to get promoted and/or increase their professional impact,” said JJ DiGeronimo. “They understand the value of mentors and sponsors but are often unsure how to identify, align, connect and develop these instrumental relationships to help make their goals a reality.”
Being 100% self-paced and designed for busy professionals, "How to Find Mentors & Sponsors" guides learners through action-based strategies with detailed tools, techniques, and videos to define their goals, network with confidence, and build impactful relationships.
Many organizations have some form of mentor-based programs but mentees often struggle to get the most from these programs. This course will help both mentors and mentees learn how to foster effective meetings, timelines and actions with the goal to further support diversity and inclusion throughout the organization.
“The process of finding a mentor is more involved than just identifying a person to help with your career,” said DiGeronimo. “The participant first needs to clearly communicate their accomplishments, define their goals, identify their gaps, and connect with professionals that can help guide, support and create additional momentum and alignment. This course helps participants with specific steps to streamline this detailed process of finding and aligning with both mentors and sponsors.”
Studies show that professionals who have mentors and sponsors find their work to be more enjoyable, experience more advancements, have more professional opportunities, and enjoy greater personal and professional development.
