Have you ever wished there was someone who could give you objective advice about industry, workplace, career or leadership issues?  Someone who is knowledgeable, experienced, but not necessarily in your organization?  At the IECA we have many members who have been in the energy industry for years.  These individuals have learned to be successful through a variety of experiences, and they possess a broad spectrum of expertise.  You can now tap into these resources through IECA's Mentoring Program.

Due to the success of the 2016 pilot program, we are launching the 2017 Mentoring Program which is open to all members.  Persons interested in being mentored this year are encouraged to submit an application (Mentee Application). Your particular areas of interest/need will be used to help find a mentor whose expertise will be most valuable for you.

All persons interested in participating in the Mentoring Program are encouraged to complete an application (Mentee Application or Mentor Application) no later than Friday, April 14, 2017.  Applications should be returned to mentoring@ieca.net. The Leadership Development Committee (LDC) will endeavor to match needs of prospective mentees with the expertise of prospective mentors. Pairings will be communicated the week of April 24th. Each Mentor will be given resource materials to guide the initial interaction so that their Mentee can develop goal/objective to be achieved during the following months. The program will conclude in early December with time allowed before year end to gather feedback and suggestions on ways to improve the Program going forward. There will be several touchpoints from the LDC during the Program to gauge what is working well, what is not, and what can be done to help.

Success of the Mentoring Program depends on engaged participation by Mentors and Mentees. Mentors will benefit by sharing their knowledge and experiences, as well as by practicing and further developing leadership skills. Mentees will benefit by receiving guidance derived from years of experience, objective observation, and one-on-one attention. Take advantage of this opportunity to improve your skills and prepare for the next level of leadership.
