As a manager, it’s important to balance your style between advice-giving mode (mentorship), active listening and curiosity mode (coaching), and empowering mode (sponsorship). In this workshop, we will define and practice each of these skills, and talk about how to know when to employ one over the other - especially when you’re managing people who work really differently than you do.
Attendees will walk away with brand new game plans for their one-on-ones and tons more experience choosing and switching between the three modes. They’ll also learn about why sponsorship is so much more effective for marginalized people.
All of Wherewithall’s workshops consist of a mix of prepared presentation, group exercises, and worksheets. Attendees will leave with a ton of resources and practice using their new skills.
