Program Description: Attracting a Great Mentor: Strategies to Build Your Professional Success – and How Organizations Can Benefit

This interactive and practical workshop will explore the original model of Seven Strategies for Attracting Great Mentors developed by Judy Vogel and Susan Finkelstein. Their interview project using an appreciative methodology with 24 successful professionals in many fields discovered powerful strategies and remarkable results achieved through informal mentoring relationships. Judy will present respondents’ inspiring and provocative stories of personal and professional success, including their courage in the face of barriers to their efforts -- and the ongoing impact these mentors had on their efforts to expand their potential, build their careers and enrich their lives. An article about this project, titled “Attracting Great Mentors: Seven Strategies to Cultivate,” was published in 2011 in the OD Network’s journal, “OD Practitioner.”

We will discuss the article’s findings and consider adopting some of these Seven Strategies ourselves to seek mentors who might support our efforts to build resilience and skills. We will also consider how to incorporate these findings in coaching and consulting with clients and how informal mentoring can be a valuable part of a strategy for organization development, diversity initiatives, leader development and succession planning.
