Since ancient times, humans have been advancing our knowledge by learning from each other. The idea of mentoring is nothing new, but leveraging the power of a mentoring culture to advance ourselves, our teams, and our organizations is something we can all benefit from.
Do you have a mentor? What about a mentee? Is having a mentor the same as having a coach, or a sponsor? What does mentorship have to do with organizational health and growth?
In this month's Chapter Event, we will be hearing from the founder of The Mentor Project, Dr. Deborah Heiser, to learn not only about the power derived from cultivating a culture of mentoring networks, but also how we can go about building our own mentor/mentee networks while helping foster these networks for our organizations, our clients, and their organizations!
Dr. Heiser will cover how mentor networks benefit mentees and mentors, and how increasing mentoring relationships can help your organization reach the next level. She will tell us best practices about mentor networks and lessons learned while leading The Mentor Project; lessons we can all benefit to learn from!

About The Mentor Project:
The Mentor Project is a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that was created to shed light on the benefits of mentoring. 'We know the benefits mentees receive from finding a good mentor. But did you know that mentors receive as many and often more benefits from mentoring than their mentees? Mentors report feelings of fulfillment, legacy, meaning productivity, and value. They feel connected to the world in a deeper way than before they became a mentor.'
