Leadership Thunder Bay
“One of the greatest values of mentors is the ability to see ahead what others cannot see and to help them navigate a course to their destination” (John C. Maxwell)
The Mentorship Program runs from September to June each year and is available to participants of Leadership Thunder Bay who have graduated within the last 3 years.
What is Mentoring?
Mentoring is a strengths-based developmental, confidential, and mutual relationship between the Mentor and Mentee/Protégé. It is a process where an individual transfers knowledge, skills, and abilities to support the Mentee to:
Develop an expanded vision (future growth and strategy/big picture thinking)
Assess the current situation, and advance competency, skills, and knowledge (behaviors and attitudes)
Determine strategies for increased influence/political savvy and “being heard”
Reinforce past, current, and future efforts and uphold accountability for actions
Create and evaluate effective action plans
Want to become a Mentee?
In order for the Mentorship Committee to assist in matching mentees with suitable mentors, an application form must be completed. The committee will consider the goals and expected outcomes to source potential mentors. A mentee may already have a mentor that they wish to work with, which will be supported through the mentorship program.
