March Program
March 1, 2017
Ready, Set, Grow!
Our March meeting was a casual and informative conversation with two very generous professionals. Richard Sweet, Marketing Advisory with Southwest Airlines and Kelly Boyd, Partner at BBC Public Relations. Along with our Moderator, Garland Preddy, Kelly and Richard sat with us to share their valuable experiences as mentors in both informal and formal programs.
Both panelists provided attendees with several key takeaways: this is not an instant gratification process so patience is a virtue, kindness is strength and when shown can set the tone for highly productive conversations, and the knowledge that you just might shift your own perspective is a powerful aha along the way.
Finding time in your professional career to be a mentor does not have to be a stressful experience. Set clear boundaries, establish a framework for communications and face-to-face meetings, and walk into the experience knowing you will get as much as you give and just might end up with a friend for a lifetime.
