Liaison is all about connecting people, so we’re proud to offer a professional mentoring program for our employees and alumni. The goal of the program is to help you foster professional relationships and to offer participants the opportunity to continually improve and learn. Program mentees get the advantage of hearing about their mentors experiences which can help them get through difficult situations with fewer pitfalls. It allows people to learn about best practices and shortcuts that others have discovered through years of working and helps to develop careers. Being a mentor helps you discover, appreciate, and leverage your skills and experience by sharing it with others. Everybody wins!
Here’s how it works: It’s a 4-month commitment. We’ll start by asking you to complete a short questionnaire that will help us match you with another participant in either the mentor or mentee role – your choice. Liaison will pair you with a partner and invite you to an initial kick-off meeting to meet your mentor/mentee. From there, the two of you will decide how often you will meet and how to focus your time. We recommend that you meet at least once per month.
The initial meeting will be in person and outside of work hours but for the remainder of the meetings you will decide whether to meet in person or by phone. We’ll provide guidance and suggestions on what to discuss in your meetings, how to share the knowledge you both have, and how to make your time productive and valuable to both participants.
