What's LAUNCH Sponsorship @ Work All About?
It’s an open secret how employees succeed in the workplace. Sponsors. Sponsors, far more than mentors, play crucial roles in getting their protégés high profile work, promotions, and a seat at the decision table. And yet while many people have mentors, they often lack sponsors. They lack people who can provide them with access to exclusive networks, broadcast their achievements to senior executives, and ensure that they have the stretch assignments they need to succeed.
But what is a sponsor? What tasks must sponsors complete? How can protégés best communicate with their sponsors? And how can you tell when a sponsoring relationship is complete?
In this 30-minute e-learning module, we will cover the ground rules for sponsorship success. Because this is the end game, where we use sponsorship as a tool to advocate, champion, and support employees to ensure they reach positions of power. That is the victory that awaits a sponsor, a protégé, and the organization to which they both belong.
