Mentorship

All ACHE members have access to the ACHE sponsored Leadership Mentoring Network. Locally, THEF has developed a Mentorship Program for ACHE members in the chapter service region to learn and develop as healthcare leaders and professionals. We believe that no matter where you are in your career, mentoring others - and being mentored - should be a part of your professional growth.

Why Become a Mentor?

A mentor is an individual who helps and guides another individual's development. There are many reasons for becoming a mentor including:

  • Learning about yourself

  • Becoming energized through a fresh personal or professional perspective and contributing to another's career development

  • Strengthening your coaching and leadership skills by working with individuals from different backgrounds and with different personality types

 

Why Become A Mentee?

Mentee is the name given to the person who receives guidance from the mentor. That guidance may take many forms. For example,

  • Building self-confidence

  • Developing professional and winning behaviors

  • Sharpening critical thinking skills and knowledge

 

People can become mentees at almost any age. A young manager can receive valuable guidance from experienced mid-career executives, while the mid-careerist may benefit from a mentor who is at the C-suite level. Senior executives ready to move up from a small or mid-size organization may benefit from the counsel of a CEO or COO whose career already includes leading larger, more complex organizations.
