Strengthening the not-for-profit sector by providing mentoring to community sector leaders together
Are you new to management or leadership? If so, you may very well benefit from being mentored by an experienced manager/leader.
The programme coordinator meets with you to understand what you are hoping to gain from a mentor, the Coordinator then matches you with a mentor who has the skills and experience that aligns with what you are seeking from a mentor. 1:1 meetings with your mentor are held on a minimum of a monthly basis for 1-1.5 hrs. Educational/ networking meetings with mentees and mentors are also included during the 6-month period. There will also be support for you through the Programme Coordinator.
The WBOP Mentoring Programme is an annual programme conducted by SociaLink in conjunction with the Mentoring Foundation. Mentors assist with growing leadership skills of, for example, general managers, chairs of boards, presidents of committees, practice leaders in the community, social, sport and creative sectors.
Your organisation will also have the opportunity to undertake an organisational needs assessment through the NZ Navigator (see https://www.nznavigator.org.nz/) to identify your organisational strengths and areas for improvement. A discussion of the results with SociaLink’s Organisational Advisor resulting in a detailed report on priorities, with referrals and recommendations, which will be shared with your mentor (confidentially).
The cost for this programme is $250 per mentee.
The 2022 programme will likely start at the end of March (exact date to be confirmed) with an in-person orientation workshop for 2.5 hours at the Kollective. The last half hour is a mix and mingle with the mentors in the programme.
The programme will be on a ‘first-come, first-served’ basis and will take up to 12 mentees for the 2022 programme.
