How To Find Mentors & Sponsors Without Asking
Mentors and Sponsors can both play a key role in smoothing the path that lies ahead, informally and formally, yet so many people fail to make the most of the potential support that lies within their network.
This session will look at the key foundations needed to put in place to attract the right support, from the strength of an individual’s network to getting their needs and message clear. Andy Lopata will look at how to access the true potential of your network, what motivates people to support, mentor and sponsor you and what mentors and sponsors expect from those they support.
In this ninety minute interactive session he will explore:
- The power of your network
- Understanding who influences who within your organisation
- How to maintain strong relationships even when you’re busy
- Taking control of what people say about you when you’re not in the room
- Finding and working with sponsors and mentors - formally and informally
