2017-2018 EWG Mentoring Program Dynamic Mentoring Connections

Tuesday, November 7, 2017 3:00-5:30pm (14 proteges, 13 mentors, 1 PC)

This key session, facilitated by TTCs Kathy Wentworth Drahosz, is the first opportunity for matched participants to come together in a formal training environment to discuss launching their mentoring partnership.  The Dynamic Mentoring Connections session engages mentors and protégés in a series of career development discussions designed to allow partners time to plan their strategies, and to begin to practice and apply mentoring skills to their relationships.  The 2017-2018 EWG Mentoring Program cohort received practical, easy-to-use mentoring guides (along with the DISC Behavioral Assessment and the Workplace Values Report) for use during the training program, and for on-going career counseling and career planning.

EWG President Paige Atkins and Marilyn Quagliotti opened the session with welcome remarks and thank-yous, and the session was facilitated by The Training Connection’s Founder and President, Kathy Wentworth Drahosz.
