Mentorship

Welcome to the OBTA business travel mentorship program!

 

This structured program is designed to: 

  • Match a mentor to a mentee requesting coaching on their career
  • Offer support to help you both get the most out of the relationship

 

What’s in it for you? 

Mentees can discuss topics and glean advice surrounding:

  • Career aspirations and progression
  • Effective networking
  • Influencing others
  • Time management
  • Work/life balance
  • Leadership development
  • Recent successes and failures

 

Mentors can guide their mentee and are expected to:

  • Help transform the career of your mentee
  • Ask questions of mentee to deepen discussions
  • Listen to mentee and help mentee develop their thought process
  • Challenge the mentee’s way of thinking
  • Help identify skill gaps
  • Identify and facilitate development opportunities
  • Support mentee during challenging assignments
  • Be a sponsor (provide visibility to mentee)
  • Be open, honest, and constructive
  • Clearly state your time availability
  • Ensure confidentiality

 

What’s required from you? 

The mentor role should not involve a significant time commitment – we anticipate a time commitment of approximately an hour a month, over 9 months.
