    Create a Circle of Mentors for Success in Business and Life

    in Training

    When you look at your career in today’s job market, experts say there are at least four key issues you must pay attention to: 1) job mobility, 2) globalization, 3) technology, and 4) the pace of change.


    Career experts say that to keep on track you need a steady job and a robust social network. But today’s guest, Wendy Murphy, Ph.D., Associate Professor of Management at Babson College, says you need something more to grow your career. You need to build strategic relationships at work. Specifically, you need to create a circle of mentors, sponsors and peers to be more successful at work and in life.


    In addition to her teaching duties, Dr. Murphy serves as the Coordinator for Mentoring Programs through the Center for Women's Entrepreneurial Leadership. She is also the co-author of “Strategic Relationships at Work: Creating Your Circle of Mentors, Sponsors, and Peers for Success in Business and Life.” Her research appears in a variety of prestigious scholarly journals.

    Thanking the Mentors in Your Life

    in Training

    Several years ago a dear friend and mentor of mine died suddenly. I never got a chance to tell him how important he was to me. I am not alone. Many people never get around to thanking the people who made a major difference in their lives.


    Walter Green is not one of them. He never has to worry about expressing gratitude to those who had an impact in his life. Over the course of one year, Green traveled around the country on a "Journey of Gratitude" and thanked 44 men and women who gave him a helping hand at various stages of his life. He said he wanted to tell these men and women how much they mattered to him before anyone’s health or life was compromised and the opportunity slipped away.


    For 25 years Green was the Chairman and CEO of Harrison Conference Services, a leading conference center management company. Since selling his company, he has mentored young adults and is actively involved in several non-profit organizations. He lives with his wife Lola in San Diego.


    Join me on Thursday, June 11 from 10:00-10:30 a.m. (PDT) as I talk to Walter Green about thanking the mentors in your life.

    SCORE chapters provide face-to-face mentoring and free workshops to people in their geographic area, however, by using the internet, counsellors are able to work with people outside their geographical area, so the most qualified counsellors can work with the most interested people.

    Tom Hellman is the current president. Bill Roy is the most active member. There are more than twenty mentors, each will be on to talk about their area of expertise.

    Why Mentors Have Been Important in Influencing Who I Am Today

    in Business

    This week's episode focuses on how mentors have helped me throughout the years from my days in seminary and throughout my career as an ordained Minister.  I feel my mentors in ministry helped me navigate the ups and downs of parish ministry and has been valuable as I entered the world of business.  I will also discuss a three year program I completed for new Pastors, which also helped me thrive in ministry.


    One of my passions is creating a mentorship program for entrepreneurs.  I will discuss how a program like this can help entrepreuners learn the tricks of the trade so they may be able to master any situation they encounter in their business.


    Mentors taught me that my formal education wasn't intended to give me the answers, but that it would give me the skills to find the answers for myself; That the time to quit is when it isn't fun anymore; That my work is serious, but I shouldn't take myself too seriously.


    What I learned from Mentors is that it doesn't matter where you come from as much as where you are headed.


    Something to think about: The printing press was invented when over 90% of the population of Europe was unable to read or write.
