Geared for Northwestern community members with several years of existing experience and who do not directly report to a boss with a “C” in their title, this 90-minute, online mentor circle we'll discuss strategies to help you get noticed by, work with and rewarded by C-Suite (e.g., chief executive officer, chief financial officer, chief information officer, chief marketing officer, etc.) members. This mentor circle will discuss the value (often hidden) people can provide to senior leaders, avoiding common pitfalls and how to prepare for success. The C-Suite has significant control over compensation, career progression and assignments, so the ability to develop professional relationships with them can be a significant career catalyst and important source of knowledge, mentoring and support.
