We caught up with some ICMA members at our Annual Conference in Baltimore to learn what it means to be a good mentor, and some of the most valuable ways that you can pay it forward.
ICMA’s history is rooted in the sharing of best practices among local government managers. From practical guidance, to the more ephemeral, a good mentor can provide the advice you need when you need it most. They can even help you think outside of the box, and approach issues in an innovative way. So, when asked to share stories of their own mentoring experience, these ICMA members had plenty to share.
In this episode, we caught up with some ICMA members at the 104th ICMA Annual Conference in Baltimore to learn what it means to be a good mentor, and some of the most valuable ways that you can pay it forward. Take a listen and see what lessons you can take home to become a more present, equitable, and influential mentor in your community, and beyond.
ICMA’s vision is to be the leading association of local government professionals dedicated to creating and supporting thriving communities throughout the world. We do this by working with our more than 12, 000 members to identify and speed the adoption of leading local government practices to improve the lives of residents. ICMA offers membership, professional development programs, research, publications, data and information, technical assistance, and training to thousands of city, town, and county chief administrative officers, their staffs, and other organizations throughout the world.
