Webinar: The Art and Science of Mentoring Women & NextGen Leaders

An Online Course to Help Frontline Managers, Recruiters, Human Resources, and Talent Development Leaders Learn How to Mentor Women and NextGen Leaders. 

The Talent Management Reality: Traditional hiring models will not provide organizations with a pipeline filled with talented individuals poised and ready to be leaders. Leadership Development Expert Margaret Spence and author of Leadership Self Transformation says, your one size fits all method of evaluating potential within your talent pool overlooks high-potential. Talented individuals are often invisible because they don’t fit your view of who leaders are. Today, many talented individuals are frustrated with the lack of upward mobility.  As managers, you haven’t figured out how to mentor and uplevel talented individuals consistently and effectively. The bold question, What is your idea of talent and potential? Is your view of talent biased or open to seeing everyone’s potential?

This workshop will help you understand talent development through the eyes of people who think their organization failed to develop their talent. We will ask and answer one critical question: What can we do to train managers to spot potential?

The consistent commitment to employee development is a challenge for most organizations. Mentorship is the critical component of employee success but how do you choose the right way to mentor and sponsor employees? How do you uplevel, upskill, and mentor simultaneously?

True leadership means giving back – as a leader you have to decide that you’re going to do something that matters for the next generation and mentorship is where it starts. Leaders are born, trained, molded and shaped – but they also die on the vine because no one is willing to help them succeed.

This presentation will challenge you to plant the seeds of success for the next generation. We will show you how to take a mentee under your wings and help them shine. This course takes an honest look at how mentorship fails and what we can do as leaders to inspire and lead the next generation.

Margaret will challenge the norm and inspires managers to look beyond themselves to see how simple acts of mentorship can impact their employee’s future. Margaret will energize your audience to shed their insecurity and embrace their role as a driving force to help others succeed.

Who Should Attend:

Every talent-acquisition leader or recruiter charged with increasing the number of women candidates and minorities on your team.

Talent managers who are focused on successfully hiring women and diverse candidates and who are keenly focused on post-hire candidate success.

Anyone looking to expand the number of women and minority candidates in their organization.

Organizations that are looking to transform their brand messaging around recruiting women and empowering diversity.

What You Will Learn: 

We will evaluate the next generation’s view that they’re not interested in getting our permission to be successful. They intend to define their own success and HR isn’t ready to deal with their attitude about work.

How do you help employees envision their future if they are struggling to see how they fit into the organization’s hierarchy?

How should managers impact on the growth of NextGen leaders? The person who has to potential to sit in your seat? What does it mean to be a strategic mentor? How do you mentor effectively with an impact?
