Sponsorship—whether spoken or unspoken—has been at the root of promotions and deal brokering since the beginning of business. But it doesn’t have to be something only open to a few elites. Sponsorship, although tricky to navigate, isn’t impossible to figure out -- and it’s a game changer for both individuals and the organizations where they work.
Join us along with Julia Taylor Kennedy, Senior Vice President at the Center for Talent Innovation (CTI), for this special Jam Session to learn how to get ready for sponsorship. She will:
- Discuss how power dynamics work in today’s global corporations
- Reflect on their own “sponsor readiness” as sponsors, protégés, and organizations
- Identify skill gaps and unique strengths
- Learn the tools to cultivate sponsor relationships
- Build cultures of sponsorship across their organization
Julia Taylor Kennedy is senior vice president at the CTI where she drives qualitative research and writing. She is also director of digital learning at Hewlett Consulting Partners (HCP), setting and overseeing strategy for the development, marketing and implementation of digital tools that help companies create inclusive company cultures based on proven CTI research and HCP practices.
