What’s the difference between Leadership Discovery and a traditional mentor program?
In a traditional mentor program, participants are paired with one mentor for a specified period of time. Through Leadership Discovery, a group of participants are simultaneously exposed to multiple leaders over a five-month period. This small group format allows attendees to participate in a healthy peer-to-peer dialogue designed to enhance the mentoring experience.
Will the Chamber offer a traditional mentor program this year?
No. Leadership Discovery is an enhancement of the one-on-one mentoring program that we previously offered through Charleston Young Professionals. With the added benefits such as a personalized DISC assessment, peer discussions and a three-course etiquette dinner, Leadership Discovery is sure to provided participants with a much more robust program than the traditional program provided.
