This year, WILD Chicago will be continuing our Mentorship Program with the Circles format, which is designed to enhance participants’ experience by increasing networking opportunities and helping to form deeper, more meaningful connections across the industry.
A kickoff event is planned to provide the Circles an opportunity to get to know one another, network with other WILD members, and hear more about the Circle format, including best practices from members who participated in the Circles last year! This kickoff event will take place on September 12th.
We are grateful to those of you who participated in the last mentorship program and hope the experience was fulfilling for all. We hope to see you again this year in a WILD Circle. Note there will be an option to continue with your existing Circle for those that want to continue to deepen the connections they’ve already made.
WILDlings Event Series - Overcoming Challenges in the Workplace
The WILD community are in for a real treat, with a diverse panel session providing the opportunity to hear the synergies of Workplace challenges from the Financial markets to Rugby Field, as we discuss top tips for tackling common workplace challenges with authentic leadership, confidence, self awareness and reliance.
WILD is extremely privileged to have the support of CMEGroup who have kindly agreed to host the evening. CME Group have a longstanding strong commercial partnership with, and are proud sponsors of the Saracens Women's Rugby Team and we are thrilled to have members of the team and coaching staff on our panel. The Saracens Women's team recently defended their title and were crowned champions at the Women's Tyrells Premier 15s for the 207/18 season, securing the title for the 13th time. Quite an achievement when you consider the team aren't 'professional' and fit their rugby around their full time jobs!
Joining our Saracens panelist is Nick Bradley from Mandala Leaders, specialising in Business & Sports Leadership Coaching, presenting ‘Zero To Authentic Hero - the 7 key steps to become a true leader’ and dive deeper into how many of our behaviours are driven by sub-conscious beliefs.
Nick is also qualified in Sports Psychology In Business and separately is a qualified business and leadership coach with the European Mentoring and Coaching Council. Nick also supports ‘The 3 Pillars Project’ which promotes Exercise, Education and Ethos in young people by taking rugby into prisons.
This is sure to be a lively and motivating evening to get you thinking about workplace challenges in a new light. more info...
