During her presentation, Nancy said that mentors provide coaching, guidance, and help hold you accountable. On the other hand, a sponsor looks out for you in your absence and helps connect you with opportunities by spreading word of your reputation and skills. My agency has an official mentoring program, and our Advanced Leadership Program is a vehicle for sponsorship. Does your agency have formal mentorship and/or sponsorship opportunities?
