ATMA's Mentorship Program is Launching.

Our most recent webinar explored answers to those who question, Is mentorship for me?

The Mentoring Asia Program, or MAP offers benefits for all participants whether they are mentors or mentees.  

We've gathered some of the top thoughts from the webinar:

  1. Mentoring is a powerful way for both mentors and mentees to grow and be successful. It's not just about benefiting the mentee but also the mentor.

  2. Mentoring provides a platform for sharing experiences, ideas, and honest feedback, helping individuals in their personal and professional development.

  3. It offers an opportunity for mentors to use skills they might not have used for years and to reflect on their past experiences for personal growth and learning.

  4. Mentoring is seen as a valuable leadership skill, especially in the context of empathetic leadership, which is gaining importance in today's leadership landscape.

  5. The mentor-mentee relationship is a two-way learning process, where both parties exchange ideas and knowledge, making it a mutually beneficial experience.

  6. In regions like APAC, where opportunities for professional networking and community-building may be limited, mentoring can help create a sense of community and connect professionals.

  7. Mentoring is essential for navigating non-traditional career paths, providing mentees with the support, advice, and vocabulary needed to progress in their careers.

  8. It allows mentees to seek guidance and validation for their unique career interests, especially when those interests don't follow a conventional path.

  9. Finding the right mentor can be a crucial step, even if it means reaching out to high-level senior leaders who can offer unique perspectives and support.

  10. Practical tips for maintaining a successful mentoring relationship include taking ownership of your development, making time for mentoring, and viewing it as an investment in personal and professional growth.
