Focus on deepening the relevant connections you’re making through CX, while furthering potential for both mentors and mentees.
How Mentoring Circles Work
Our mentoring committee assigns participants to small mentoring circles of 8 to 10 people, creating diverse groups for robust discussion and viewpoints. The circles then let participants share ideas and encourage each other to stretch themselves personally and professionally, while working together to build a professional network of peers.
Each circle is facilitated by an executive leader whose role is to lead the initial meeting discussion and facilitate conversations to allow circle members to stretch and challenge their thinking and professional development.
Members are assigned to circles through answers to a questionnaire that is used to obtain information on common development areas and goals, as well as meeting location and time preferences. Members are also placed into circles with consideration for diverse industry participation.
At the midpoint during the program, each circle should provide a list of topics and conversations that inspired their circle to the committee members to share with other circles. The mentors and circle members will also be asked to participate in a short survey at the end of the six months.
