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 in which we match mentees with mentors who have the ability to 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 complete an organisational needs assessment through the NZ Navigator (see https://www.nznavigator.org.nz/) and 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 $150 per mentee.
The 2021 programme starts on Thursday 11 March 2021 with an in-person orientation workshop from 3-5.30pm 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 2021 programme.
