The New Manager Mentor Program is designed for employees who are new to the management function and seasoned managers who are in the process of building or taking over a new team and would like a refresher on foundational management principles. Participants in the program are assigned a mentor to guide them through the coursework and help them develop key management skills.
The program lasts 12 weeks and requires a minimum commitment of 2 hours per week. Each week the participants will speak with their mentor over the phone for approximately 1 hour and complete the necessary pre-work before the call. The assignments are designed to engage the participant in the upcoming material by observing a real world interaction. Although the assignments are designed to require approximately 1 hour of work, participants are encouraged to spend additional time understanding how the concepts relate to their current situation.
