The “Mentoring Security Leaders Program” was developed by the ASIS International “Leadership Management Practices Council”. The “Mentoring Security Generations” program is a process where an ASIS member, (Protégé) is matched with an experienced ASIS colleague (Mentor), and is designed to promote long-term leadership and career development through a one-on-one Mentor-Protégé relationship. The length of the mentoring relationship is recommended to be twelve (12) months however the length of the mentoring relationship should be agreed upon by the Mentor and Protégé. Of great value is that any ASIS Member at any level may participate in the program.
Mentor & Protégé Commitment Mentoring is a process by which the Mentor and Protégé work together to enhance the Protégé’s personal and professional growth. Both the Mentor and Protégé need to value the mentoring partnership, and for those with CPP certifications, the opportunity to earn re-certification points as a Mentor is a great way to give back to our profession, while helping yourself to recertify!
