Talking about mentoring in PMI Madrid

The last week I had the chance to talk in the monthly PMI Madrid meeting about the mentoring program that me, together with other four volunteers, have established for all the PMI Madrid partners.

PMI Madrid monthly meeting

The goal of the presentation was to show to the PMI Madrid partners that the program is available for all of them, acting as mentors or mentees or both, in order to increase the number of participants in the next edition of the program, that will be kicked off the next month of October. For it, I exposed the benefits that a mentoring program provides to the mentors and to the mentees, and a couple of partners who have participated in a previous edition of the program, exposed their personal experience, and the benefits they have achieved going through this mentoring program. 

As a summary of the main benefits for the participants I extract these ones:

  • Contribution to the project management profession
  • Strenght their leadership skills
  • Satisfaction of helping to other colleagues
  • Way to get PDUs

  • Professional development
  • Exposure to new ways of thinking
  • Increase their self confidence
  • Way to get PDUs

  1. If you plan on a long term career as a project manager, then yes, even with your level of experience, I would suggest getting your PMP. You can prepare yourself for the exam in one of the PMP trainingproviders like You can do minimal prep-work to get 40 PMI® Contact Hours and apply to PMI for PMP Exam before the class begins.

  2. Underestimate Project Management at your peril. Until recently considered taboo amongst polite society, there are just not enough blues songs written about Project Management. Inevitably Project Management is often misunderstood by so called 'babies', many of whom blame the influence of television. Relax, sit back and gasp as I display the rich tapestries of Project Management.
