''I wanted new perspectives, to expand my network, time to reflect, and a mentor that could help me to accelerate my development. AmCham’s program fulfilled all of the above!'' Carl Johan Renvall, Mentee, Triton
Are you looking for a career booster?
Or to refresh your skills with new insights and increased confidence?
Our program is designed for ambitious professionals who are looking for an edge, to advance with new approaches to solving issues at work, and to meet people who challenge them and who think differently.
We focus on three key areas of mentorship; a great mentor, a thriving community and workshops that are well rounded and give practical tips for your personal and professional lives.
Results from the program:
You’ll have a deeper understanding of team dynamics and collaborative leadership
A broader network of like-minded, aspiring people
You’ll have sharpened your personal brand and heightened your profile
You’ll know yourself a little better, after listening and discussing case studies with others
Advancement. Many of our mentees advance to the next level of their careers while in the program.
Value for the Mentee’s company:
AmCham’s program provides mentees with a supportive venue for discussing and reflecting on challenges they face. Group exercises, one-on-one mentor sessions and skills based workshops all focus on building their confidence, energizing their commitment to develop themselves, and giving them a helicopter perspective to find solutions to their work objectives.
Each mentee/mentor pair is personally matched through careful consideration of career ambitions, background experience and personality profiles.
new addition: We’ve added a second program for professionals on the executive track
The Executive Program is designed for professionals who have 15 years of experience or more and who are seeking to learn and share through case studies, situational analysis and to put some extra time into sharpening up their leadership skills.
Here’s what you get when you join AmCham’s Mentoring Program:
Our mentors are experienced executives from the AmCham community who have hard-earned career achievements and wisdom to share. They all have big hearts and feel honored to help guide ambitious professionals with insights on challenges they may face. Having a mentor can really be a competitive edge. Just imagine having someone to challenge you, someone who really cares, who will give you honest feedback, and help you see alternatives when you truly need them.
All eight (8) of our monthly workshops are taught by professional advisors who are experts in their respective topics. The workshops consist of lectures, role-playing, Q&A, break-out sessions, and meet-and-greet opportunities with executives. The topics are designed to elevate professional skills, build confidence, and prepare you for leadership roles. See the list of workshops below.
A Thriving Community
We’re all like-minded people who enjoy sharing and helping each other get ahead. We’re plugged in to our favorite thought-leaders and communities, and truly appreciate discussing new techniques and ways of thinking.
