Share Your Experience. Be a Mentor

“Mentoring? Me? What do I know?” — A mentor profile with Brenda Boyle, PMP

Those were the first words that went through my head when I read about the Mass Bay Mentoring Program. Although involved with project and program management for the last 20+ years, I wasn’t convinced that I could take on the role of a project management mentor. The PDU’s caught my eye but me?

Mentee Feedback

 “I felt the whole mentor-mentee partnership . . . was a dynamic experience that fitted an upcoming project management professional, like me, to improve and learn successful project management practices.”

“Invest the time to create a well-structured, open relationship with your mentor. It can help you achieve your goals.”

“”Learning about my mentor’s work and how he managed his career helped me consider new ways in which I might use my project management skills.”

“My most rewarding experience as a mentee has been when my mentor has offered support without stifling my individuality or my wish to do things differently. He helped me build a strong foundation and then let me go, and I was able to take risks and go out to implement them as my own.”
