Sponsorship & the Power of Relationship Capital
Learn how sponsorship boosts underrepresented employees.
This presentation takes information from our eight-year groundbreaking research in sponsorship as the basis of one of our most important and insightful talks for high-potential women and people of color. In addition to coming away with the confidence that they can improve their sponsorship initiatives, participants learn:
- The mechanics of sponsorship—what it is and isn’t, how it differs from mentorship, the essential role sponsorship plays in career success;
- Roadmaps, tools, and tactics used in ongoing successful sponsor-protégée relationships;
- Warnings about common missteps, such as “mini-me syndrome,” in which mentors unknowingly select protegees that resemble themselves.
