June 6 Business Mentor/Mentee Program – CFCC Office

cfcc_small

CHAMBER MEMBERS. . .

. . . You are invited to join us for the next
Business Mentor/Mentee Program at the

Cuyahoga Falls Chamber of Commerce
Friday, June 6, 2014
FREE to attend!
7:45 am – Coffee/Networking
8:00 am to 9:00 am – Program/Speaker
Speaker & Topic:  TBA

We will talk about your progress in the program, and you will potentially be paired up with a different
Cuyahoga Falls Chamber member in the future.

New/interested members are welcome to attend to learn more about the Program!  There will also be opportunities for you to be matched up with a fellow Chamber member at this reception!

Program Details:
The Business Mentor/Mentee Program was created by the Cuyahoga Falls Chamber of Commerce’s Membership Committee to allow Chamber Member business leaders seeking free guidance from fellow experienced Chamber Member business leaders.  The Business Mentoring Program provides one-on-one free mentoring sessions on your own scheduled time from Chamber Member business leaders who are in a leadership role, owner or management position, to a fellow Chamber Member business that may lack sufficient expertise and resources. The Chamber Mentoring Program will pair Chamber Members who have experience to share and free advice to give with individuals who are eager to receive it.

How do I become a Chamber of Commerce Business Mentor?
  • You must be a current Chamber Member in a leadership role, owner or management position.
  • You must be willing to be matched with a Chamber Member Business Leader.
  • You must be a good listener and communicator with excellent follow through.
  • You must be willing to help and share with fellow Chamber Member Business Leaders so that they can learn from your career choice experiences.
  • You must be willing to develop a professional relationship with a Chamber Member Business Mentee.
  • Complete a brief application.

I am a Business Mentee and would like to be matched with a Business Mentor:

  • You must be a current Chamber Member.
  • You must be willing to commit to being matched with a Chamber Member Business Mentor.
  • You must be a good listener and communicator with excellent follow through.
  • You must be willing to learn from a Chamber Member Business Mentor.
  • You must be willing to develop a professional relationship with a Chamber Member Business Mentor who can advise on work‐related issues.
  • Complete a brief application.

PROGRAM GUIDELINES

  1. Set up a meeting schedule that works best for both mentor and mentee. It’s a good idea to avoid, lunch and coffee break meetings. Meetings require a professional and distraction-free setting.
  2. Maintaining regular meetings between mentor and mentee is the best way to keep both parties engaged. Even if there are no urgent items of the agenda, avoid cancelling or putting off the meeting to a later date.
  3. Setup regular meeting dates in advance so both parties have time to fully prepare.
  4. Aim for quality of meetings, not quantity. Find ways to use your time as efficiently as possible so you can cover the most ground.
  5. Both the mentor and mentee should make themselves available in between face-to-face meetings for phone and/or email contact when required.
  6. Show interest and commitment to the relationship (through actions before words) by arriving at meetings on time and prepared, responding promptly to emails and phone messages and sharing openly and respectfully.
  7. Recognize that building trust requires time and effort from both parties.
  8. Alternate meeting locations between each other’s worksites.
  9. Stay curious and do not be afraid to ask each other questions at meetings.
  10. Remember that mentoring is a two-way street – be sure that you are both using these meetings as an opportunity to learn!
    The Cuyahoga Falls Chamber of Commerce is not responsible and releases all liability for any action that happens between a Chamber of Commerce Mentor/Mentee in our Business Mentor/Mentee Program.
