ATDChi Event
Title: Modern Mentoring Skill Building Clinic: Building Your Learning Network
Date: Thursday, April 14
Time: 5:30 PM – 8:30 PM
Description: Are you ready for modern mentoring?

Forget the one-to-one relationships that are for the few and the elite. Forget mentors and proteges that fall into and are limited by defined roles and expectations. Forget programs that are highly structured, tightly controlled, and designed with a shelf-life.

Welcome to the 21st Century and modern mentoring. Today, mentoring is about open, flexible and dynamic learning relationships where anyone can take part, anyone can connect to share information and insights, and anyone can be a learner or advisor. This is the modern mentoring, and it is here to stay.

During this interactive session, you will learn how to build your own learning network, or your own personal board of learning directors. Specifically, you will:

  • Participate in an “Ask the Expert” exercise
  • Learn about the factors that define modern mentoring
  • Examine generational issues related to mentoring
  • Discover ways to bring a modern approach to mentoring to organizations

Location: DePaul University, 8770 W Bryn Mawr Ave, Chicago, IL 60631
