Hurry up, Registration is open for Mentoring Fall 2020 from August 21st, 2020 to September 24th, 2020. Kick-off meeting for the next session will be held on September 28th, 2020.

Since 2009 PMI Lakeshore Chapter has successfully delivered a "Mentorship Program" to its members. Since its launch, it has evolved and matured into a program that supports a target population of both PMP professionals and non PMP professionals. It also meets the new requirements of the stakeholders - you the members.

The revised Mentoring Program is intended to go beyond just answering the occasional questions or providing some adhoc help. A major deliverable will be the reassurance that both the Mentor and Mentee build the ongoing relationship of learning, continuous dialogue and challenge. Most of all both the mentors and mentees experience benefits.
In addition to one-on-one mentoring, you can select from several small-group sessions to meet your mentoring needs:

  • Project Management: Focus on project management skills and traits required to become a more effective project manager.

  • Career Development Mentorship: Focus on how you can plan for the next step in your career and hitting your future goals.

  • Leadership: Focus on leadership skills, such as, holding the high-stakes conversation, developing influence skills, establishing trust-based relationships.


If you register as a Mentor, you will leverage your own experience in project management within your specific industry or share your career development experiences to guide others in similar industries or those considering career transition. Over a period of four to five months, the investment of your time and support to assist Mentees in discovering and developing their talents in project management is what separates you as a mentor from the average network contact.

As a Mentee you will take the lead in your personal and career development by sharing in the lessons learned from a more experienced project management role model in your field. As you work your way through a journey of self-discovery, you will make your own determination whether the experiences of others will work for you.

Fundamental to the success of the mentoring program is a common understanding of the expectations each participant has. However difficult it may be, Mentors and Mentees should discuss their personal expectations, set the ground rules, and develop a clear and realistic set of expectations. These tasks should be completed at the first meeting.

Note: Up to 7 Professional Development Units (PDUs) can be claimed against "Giving Back" Category for Project Managers training hours upon full completion of the program.

Kick-off meeting details and details about the location and time will be sent to those who register, close to the start of the session. Registration will be open for approximately 4 weeks. All registrants will be informed of the next steps once the registration process is completed.
