Overview

How to Create Your Personal Group of Mentors

Mentorship is so last year. Rather than seeking out a single mentor, the most successful leaders focus instead on building a circle of support — a diverse group of people with whom you consult regularly to get advice and feedback.

Having access to your own personal circle of support means that, no matter what the situation—personal or career-related—you always have someone whom you can count on for high quality support.

What You Will Learn

In this 60-minute webcast, Danielle Harlan, PhD, Founder and CEO of the Center for Advancing Leadership and Human Potential, will draw upon lessons from her book, The New Alpha: Join the Rising Movement of Influencers and Changemakers Who Are Redefining Leadership, to show you how to build your own circle of support—including who you should look for, how you can connect them in, and how they can help you.

While attending this program is FREE, reservations are required.
