  2. 2. My Background  20 Years in technology  16 Years in leadership roles.  Wide vertical experience in Finance, Healthcare, Pharmaceutical and Nonprofit.  Wide board/advisory board experience.  Helped develop informal and formal mentoring programs for a number of organizations. TAG Mentoring Program November 15, 2016
  3. 3. IT Career Crossroads  “Should I stay technical for the rest of my career, or move towards leadership?”  There is no right or wrong answer to this!  However, for those looking to move, there are considerations and/or preparations needed  However, leadership isn’t something you can learn about by simply reading leadership guides or taking AMA courses.  And that’s where mentoring steps into play…. TAG Mentoring Program November 15, 2016
  4. 4. What is Mentoring?  A developmental partnership through which one person shares knowledge, skills, information, and perspective to foster the personal and professional growth of another  The power of mentoring is that it creates a one-of-a- kind opportunity for collaboration, goal achievement, and problem solving.  It is a safe place to discuss problems and issues TAG Mentoring Program November 15, 2016
  5. 5. Mentoring vs. Coaching  Coaching is typically used in the onset of employment to onboard and acclimate an employee to their working environment. Mentoring is more appropriate once this has happened.  Coaching typically happens within the lines of reporting. Mentoring relationships are not within the lines of reporting.  Coaching in some cases may employ or infer some disciplinary methods consistent with lines of reporting. A mentoring relationship does not use disciplinary methods. TAG Mentoring Program November 15, 2016
