Expanding Mentoring Help from SueMentors: A New Webinar




I enjoy the individual mentoring that I do for organizations and for personal clients. For several years, I’ve wanted to make mentoring help more widely available. Writing my blog was a start at that.

But my mentor-mentee interactions have reinforced that mentees want – and need – real-time examples of advice that addresses their issues.

So I am pleased to be partnering with my graduate alma mater, the Tulane University Office of Alumni Relations, to initiate a monthly Mentoring Help webinar, with the first webinar in May 2018. The 30-minute format will include 3 sections:
  •         A brief review of the mentoring topic for the month
  •         A case example of the mentoring topic with a mentee and mentor working through the mentee's issue in real time
  •         SueMentor’s Question Time (aka answering questions submitted in advance of the webinar).



This form solicits information from you about your interest in attending the webinars, identification of the issue(s) that you'd like the mentor to address, and designation of whether you'd be interested in serving as the real-time case example, if your topic/question is selected. (You do not need to be a Tulane University alum or student to participate.)

We’ve categorized topics as shown but welcome additional categories you may want addressed.



Please contact me at SueMentors AT gmail.com if you have problems with the form or specific questions.

After you submit the Interest form, please email your latest CV or resume to: Sue_Men.cdiif7k3cxm6ksm0@u.box.com


Thank you for your interest.

What Kind of Culture do YOU Want to Work in - And How Can You Decide If You Fit?

Most mentees I work with are pursuing a job – whether it’s getting a job or moving to a different job and/or company – and one area that mentees don’t routinely consider is that of a company’s culture. (See resources that describe “company culture” such as https://www.thebalance.com/what-is-company-culture-2062000.) Mentees focus on the job under recruitment and on the organization, but they don’t always take the time to understand the hiring organization’s culture – and the mentee’s fit in different company cultures.
There are many resources on categories of company cultures that provide job-seekers with ways to assess what categories they would best fit in. And these can be also used in an interview situation to determine culture.
