WEST Dynamic Pod Mentoring

Be part of a novel mentoring program and receive actionable guidance and ideas to achieve your professional goals from respected mentors and peers in a safe environment. Connect with your choice of committed mentors based on your development goals. WEST has created a pilot POD Mentoring program - an accelerated 6-week program, which allows a mentee contact with multiple mentors and peers on up to six (6) growth and development topics. Topics are prioritized by you, the WEST Mentee Community. You select the topics to meet your needs. This pilot program will guide you to actionable strategies for your development and connect you with many peers in small (POD) and large group settings. All you need to do is bring your goals and ambitions, commitment to the program and a willingness to work in a POD. WEST will link you to the mentors in the critical areas of interest. Learn more about the program here.

We are currently looking for interested mentors. More information on the mentor application can be found here. We are looking forward to tapping into your expertise to help this next generation of leaders develop their skills and accomplish their goals
