Mentorship Program

Our program engages professionals in property management and helps to support and grow their skills through quality mentorship.

Why is Mentorship important?

Mentorship is about individual development; however it also helps the industry to grow and succeed, by retaining employees and enriching their skills. It helps to forge stronger relationships within our community and create an environment where our colleagues feel supported in their professional advancement.

Flexible programs for businesses

A Mentorship Program framework is available to BOMA member organizations. Working with Stillwater Coaching Ltd., the organizations could implement the Program for their employees using the already developed program materials and make any additions and revisions to best fit their needs and their organization’s culture.

“Mentoring is a process whereby a mentor and a protégé work collaboratively towards the goal of promoting and developing the protégé’s skills, abilities, knowledge and thinking processes. This process can cultivate a respectful and trusting relationship that leads to professional and personal development.”
