Did you know that successful leaders create a win-win investment by sponsoring others for new opportunities and demonstrating that they can recognise and nurture talent? In this webinar you’ll learn about effective sponsorship strategies and the successes they bring to both organisations, senior managers and talented individuals.
People tend to incorrectly use the words “mentor” and “sponsor” interchangeably. We’ve all had mentors who have offered advice, but sponsors are the people inside our company who have helped us get to senior levels. Sponsors are what you really need to succeed.
—Gordon M. Nixon President & CEO, RBC
Did you know that recommending others for important roles and willingly staking your reputation on the ability of others to succeed helps advance your own career? Successful managers and leaders create a win-win investment by sponsoring others for new opportunities and demonstrating that they can recognise and nurture talent.
For many employees—and women especially—it takes more than meeting expectations to get noticed in today’s workplace. Women who work hard and play by the rules are often overlooked when it comes to the plum assignments and big promotions that are necessary to advance to senior leadership. Effective sponsorship, which gets protégés noticed by senior-level executives, is essential to attaining top jobs.
In this webinar, I will discuss Catalyst’s research on sponsorship and mentoring, and explore ways to develop sponsorship-related training modules and individual career plans.
