Please join ATHENA Valley of the Sun and speaker Dr. Lori Wieters for a FREE virtual event
Fostering collaboration is a part of Dr. Wieters’ DNA. For years, she has been connecting people with one another for the betterment of their worlds. Dr. Wieters seeks out ways to connect people across natural boundaries and borders. As the co-owner of the Wi2 Co-Lab, a business collaborative in north Phoenix, she has the opportunity to meet many individuals and business owners and connect them to the resources they need. Her favorite question is, “what do you need next?”
Fostering collaboration is an important part of all of our lives. As leaders in the world, fostering collaboration is skill you need to use to advance your professional career and give away to others to further their careers, thus, welcoming others into the work of leadership. It is important to look at fostering collaboration as a gift that has been given to you and that you need to give away. This can be done in many ways. For this session we are going to narrow our discussion to fostering collaboration through mentoring.
At some point in your career, someone connected you to someone else, who introduced you to someone else who mentored you, whose effort launched you into your role as a formal or informal leader in your world. You can probably close your eyes and remember that person in vivid detail. Now it is your turn to remember what your mentor gave you and what you need to give away to someone else to invite them into the work of leadership. This session will provide you with a moment to reflect on the past and create a plan for mentoring one deserving recipient in the future. Through this effort, you will be exemplifying the art of fostering collaboration.
