Project Management

Project HEADWAY: Making Mentoring Actually Work


This presentation is supporting material for this video.

Mentoring programs sound like awesome ideas in theory. Build the project managers of tomorrow by having them learn from and be developed by your wisest, most experienced and capable project managers.

So good in theory, and yet often so horrible in practice (or simply incredibly short-lived). The challenge isn’t simply younger project managers not thinking they have any thing more to learn, or senior project managers being too busy (although both of those statements can be true).There are much deeper cultural and personal issues at play on both sides.

Mentoring programs can work, but there are some fundamental pre-conditions for success. Where those are met, the outcomes can be extraordinary. Where they are not, the effort can fall flat on its face.

If you are being asked to mentor, are hoping to be mentored or are trying to get a mentoring program to thrive—or at least move forward—in your organization, this is a webinar that you won’t want to miss.
