New Manager Mentor Groups

new manger mentor groups

In 2018-19 we are piloting a new version of our mentoring group experience for those who are new to management roles, whether you are managing people and teams or projects. Over five facilitated conversations, we will talk through:

  • Skills and strategies that effective managers use to motivate and engage people and teams, including goal-setting, feedback and coaching, expectation-setting and accountability measures
  • What it means to manage up and across and to claim your space and your voice
  • Aligning your personal values and strengths with your management style
  • Creating a personal development plan for what comes next

Interested? Learn more about how to join below!

Expectations 

Over 10 months (October 2018 – June 2019), each group will meet five times.

  • Groups will be comprised of no more than 10 participants. All participants are expected to attend each of the five scheduled meetings, to do all readings and assigned activities and to participate fully in each group discussion.
  • Groups will be led by a member of the WFU Alumni Personal & Career Development Center staff.
  • Group members will receive and work through booksarticles, and other resources to support the conversation.
  • Each participant will be offered the opportunity for 3 individual in-person/phone coaching sessions during the program.

How to Participate

Group members will be members of the undergraduate class of 2008 – 2014 only. To participate in the program you must fill out an application of interest by July 23, 2018. Participants will be notified of their acceptance shortly thereafter. Applications will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis, and assessed on demonstrated interest and willingness to fully participate. Upon acceptance, participants will be asked to pay the non-refundable participation fee within 48 hours or your space will be released to the next qualified applicant.
