The SPE-WA mentoring program intends to help our members reach their potential – both personally and professionally – in their behaviours, industry knowledge and skills. We are fortunate to have leaders of our industry as mentors in this program, eager and willing to pass on their breadth of experience and skills to help develop the next generation of leaders.
The program consists of three components –
- Mentoring for Professionals
A request is sent out to potential mentors and mentees to register for the mentoring program (typically around February). Unless there is a specific request for continuing a previous relationship, the most appropriate pairs will be invited to meet and begin their mentoring journey.
- Personal Development for Professionals
A series of tailored workshops and lectures based on feedback received from the SPE WA board and lessons learned from previous mentoring programs. Theses workshops include the following topics:
– Personal Branding
– Managing Conflict
– Goal setting
- Personal Development for Students
A series of tailored workshops and lectures based on feedback received from the UWA and Curtin student chapters and likely to include the following topics:
– Effective CV’s
– Presentation skills
Mentoring is one of the foundations of the development of individuals both professionally and personally. The process enriches both the mentor and the mentee and often forms rewarding long lasting bonds and relationships.
While the reasons may vary, most professionals will find need for a mentor at many stages throughout their career. Mentees seeking career and related personal development advice benefit by accessing not only their mentor but also their wider network. This can be an invaluable resource to help provide both direction and focus to your development within the industry. Our program will pair you with the most appropriate mentor to fulfil your career development needs and we look forward to your enrolment in this year’s program.
