"One of the most helpful things I leaned during this program was learning about myself. The Myers & Briggs assessment gave me a clear understanding of how I present myself at the work place and in my personal life." (Kadiatu Jalloh, Comcast, 2017 Rising Stars Mentoring Program)

 

We are thrilled to welcome back Jane Moyer, Founder and President of New Century Leadership LLC, to lead next year’s WICT Rising Star Mentoring Program.

In keeping with last year’s success, this program takes the traditional mentor, mentee format and broadens it to include mentoring from peer partners, a leadership coach and guest senior executives.  Together, the participants will seek out their authentic style, build strong alliances, and set their career strategy.

Jane, a longtime member of WICT, is a skilled professional coach, specializing in developing talent. She will guide the group through five sessions aimed at developing leadership style and strengths, organizational effectiveness, personal brand, and career strategy.

 

Purpose
The WICT Rising Star Mentorship Program is aligned with WICT’s mission to develop female leaders who transform our industry. It is designed for talented professionals who demonstrate high potential and a desire for career advancement. The materials, assessments, and executive guidance delivered through the program are of tremendous value.
 
We are happy to offer it to you for the minimal cost of the class materials.

Cost for Members & Non- Members: $250

"This program allows you to take a deep dive into who you are and what you can do. I think one of the most useful activities we did was our Strengths Finder assessment and reading in more detail about our strengths. I also think taking the Myers Briggs assessment was very beneficial. It gave me the opportunity to understand why I do things the way I do and how that makes sense for my personality type. It allows you to think about others in terms of their Myers Briggs which yields better communication and collaboration. Every session had positive and informative takeaways along with all of our assignments." (Taylor Minger, Comcast, 2017 Rising Stars Mentoring Program)
