MENTORS AND PROTÉGÉS TELL THEIR STORIES
Susan J Wells. HRMagazine. Alexandria: May 2009. Vol. 54, Iss. 5; pg. 58, 3 pgs Abstract (Summary)
Three executives shared their mentoring experience. In the early 1990s, Pam Schilling was part of a new financial management development program at a large telecommunications company. The intent was to build the next generation of leaders -- and it included formal mentoring. To get exposure to core components of financial reporting, the mentor challenged her to consolidate work done by 13 groups. This mentor nominated her to join a re-engineering team where she gained perspective, had the opportunity to make a difference, and work with top-notch management consultants, Schilling says. After a 32-year career in human resources and nine years in her current position, Tamara Trummer still considers the benefits of the mentoring relationships she took advantage of as a newly minted college graduate. Since graduating from MGM's Management Academy, a 24-week development program designed to prepare supervisors and assistant managers for manager positions, Christina Leathers now mentors other potential managers.  »  Jump to indexing (document details)

While Schilling considers both relationships critical to her development, she recalls one mentor's assignments as "career-transforming." To get exposure to core components of financial reporting, the mentor challenged her to consolidate work done by 13 groups. "Politically, it was not a welcome piece of work," she says, "but she stood by me every day, offering suggestions and guidance." This mentor nominated her to join a re-engineering team where she gained perspective, had the opportunity to "make a difference," and work with top-notch management consultants, Schilling says. From this experience, she decided to pursue and complete an MBA degree at the University of Chicago in early 2000. Spurred on, she pursued a management-consulting career after graduating-and traveled the world for the next eight years. "I'm sure...
