2020 Greater Atlanta ATD Mentor/Mentee Information Program
Starting in 2020, Greater Atlanta ATD will begin our mentoring program. The mentoring program is designed to help members develop and grow from one another. Mentees will have an opportunity to discuss, receive honest and constructive feed-back and get access to the information, knowledge and experience from a seasoned L&D professional. Mentors will have the opportunity to reflect on their own practice, enhance peer recognition and gain personal satisfaction through supporting the development of others
Mentor Program Advisor: LaKisha C. Brooks, President-Elect
How pairs are put together - Mentors/Mentees are put together based on their application and behavioral assessment (DISC)
Once pairs are selected, we will host a mandatory orientation/meet-and-greet on January 28th from 5:30pm-8pm, where we will go over the program, address expectations, and conduct a mini-workshop. The mandatory orientation/meet-and-greet agenda includes:
Pairs will meet once a month, but can meet more if they like. Meetings can take place virtually, face to face or telephone, but we do encourage at least one monthly face to face meeting.
Pairs will have three face to face group meetups to talk about how things are going, to network and have additional face to face time with each other. These meeting will last 2 hours.
Dates of Meetups
Exact dates, times and location will be provided in the coming months
Mentees will complete the following assignments related to some of ATD’s competency model.
Mentees will be asked to journal to chronicle their experience to help with their capstone project.
Mentees will have to do a short presentation about the program and present their final presentations. There will also be a “graduation” for the mentees.
