Truly Accomplished will be giving a workshop next week with the local chapter of Levo League, an international organization for young professional women. We’ll be focusing on DIY Mentorship: How to Find, Keep, and Leverge Mentors In the Next 90 Days to Accelerate Your Career.

One of the biggest ways to develop and retain talent is to provide a formal mentoring program. Yet, not all organizations can provide such a resource. Even if they do, most mentees don’t have a plan to get the most of the experience without overhelming their mentors while most mentors aren’t sure how to draw appropriate boundaries. Elissa’s experience as an HR Director really shines in this workshop as she helps young professionals build their mentoring map with achievable action items.
