Sustainably maximize your L&D Mentorship Footprint

How do we create mentoring relationships that challenge and elevate the careers of both the mentor and mentee?

New instructional designers get thrown into the deep end of L&D to either sink or swim. A balance of mentorship and self-directed learning can help them get to the surface faster. Mentorship requires intentional investments of time and energy from both parties, and it does not have to be a one-way relationship. This panel discussion will provide a framework for a mutually beneficial mentorship, and encourage mentorship between experienced and entry-level professionals.

What you will take away from the session:

  • How to create meaningful programs that encourage the mentee to take an active role in their career
  • The value of a mentor/mentee relationship in learning and development
  • How to apply your skills as an ID to help a mentee close performance gaps
  • How diverse experiences and backgrounds can help you see problems and solutions in a new light
  • How to leverage your professional community for mentee resources.
