Iron Sharpens Iron

Iron Sharpens Iron

Submitted by: Kevin Godwin, District Director of Operations As a seasoned operator and proven leader with our company for going on 15 years there is one evident truth in the dynamics of our business as well as the role of leadership…IRON SHARPENS IRON! I was reminded of this during my current mentorship, when paired with one of the most energized and passionate mentees I have had in some time, GM Shaunna Harris! Our partnership convicted me on a personal level, and reminded me why the TeamUp Program is vital to not only developing our future leaders but is a place …

As a Mentor, You Become a Mentee as Well

As a Mentor, You Become a Mentee as Well

Submitted by: Jerald Horner, Chief Information Officer  This year is my first experience with the TEAM Up Mentor Program. At first I was reluctant to sign up as a mentor because it felt a bit egotistical that I could have something to offer. If anything, I should be a mentee! As it turns out, as a mentor you become a mentee as well. The interactions are to help the mentee, but the mentor learns a lot about themselves and others through those conversations. The program also doesn’t have to be an exclusive one-on-one experience. I shaped it into a broader …

Battling Internal Demons and Self-Doubt

Battling Internal Demons and Self-Doubt

Submitted by: Victoria Newman, General Counsel Through the mentoring program, you get the opportunity to share your experiences. I’ve found that people assume others always “have it together” when that is often far from the truth. We all battle our own internal demons and self-doubt, and it’s nice to break down those presumptions of perfection.  You also you have the opportunity to expand your knowledge of other departments’ struggles, workload, processes, pressures, structure, and other nuances. This knowledge allows you to work more effectively with those departments and makes you a better business partner. I have personally benefited from my mentor’s …

Gaining More Knowledge

Gaining More Knowledge

Submitted by: Shannon Beasley, Director of Corporate Recruiting To me, the word “mentor” means growth; both personally and professionally!  I have had the opportunity to participate in our Company mentor program as a mentor and now as a mentee.  As a mentor, I enjoyed being a part of someone’s career development and helping them to grow through gaining more knowledge in a particular area of the Company.  And now, my mentor is doing the same for me.  As part of our Talent Acquisition team, my focus has been solely on identifying top talent to join our Company and through the mentorship program, …

Learning Something New Every Time

Learning Something New Every Time

Submitted by: Gilbert Garcia, ACV Supervisor Level III Being a participant in the TEAM Up program has helped me grow my career in more ways than one. It has given me so many opportunities to gain exposure in different departments within our Company. As a mentee, I was able to partner with top talent to help me in areas that I may have been struggling with in my position, and I was given best practices, training, and development to help me be more efficient in my day-to-day operations. As a mentor, I really try to inspire, coach, and pass on all the …

Being a Mentor is an Honor

Being a Mentor is an Honor

Submitted by: Victor Johnson, Director of Contact Center I have had the honor of being a mentor in the TEAM UP Program for three different mentees in the past nine months. TEAM Up is special to me because I have been mentored by a few very important people at critical stages of my life and career, so I can appreciate the value in such a program. My first mentee has grown quite a bit since we were connected back in November 2017. She was not very outspoken and was not sure how to get motivated about advancing her career. Now, she is …

Improving My Skills as a Leader and Mentor

Improving My Skills as a Leader and Mentor

Submitted by: Victor Gheorghe, District Director of Operations As a mentor I appreciate the mentoring program because, not only do I have the opportunity to impact someone’s career, but also benefit from the experience as I get to improve my own skills as a leader and mentor. Also, I get the chance to surround myself with some great people and make positive connections that, as leaders, we thrive on to continue to drive our own success.

Making a Difference

Making a Difference

Submitted by: Anna Molidor, District Director of Operations Our mentorship program is the absolute core of who we are as a Company.

The program gives team members the opportunity to explore different leadership styles, innovative thinking and continually challenging each other to keep reaching for success. This program provides team members with an outlet to explore, learn and be motivated though interpersonal communication and support. The mentees are impeccably open and honest about their struggles and challenges and …

Training and Development

Training and Development

Submitted by: Cameron Gregg, General Manager I committed to the great TMX Finance Family of Companies team in 2010 and haven’t looked back since. Over my 8 years with the Company, I have been a part of many programs/webinars/podcasts targeted towards my growth and development both as a leader and employee. The training and development efforts we have at the Company, I believe, are unmatched to anyone else in this industry. The innovative ideas and training environments we have for team member growth is what also separates us from others. In my perspective, the most impactful project we have been implementing recently …

Leadership and Responsibilities

Leadership and Responsibilities

Submitted by: Angela Bilodeau, General Manager  I have been in management for many years and have been exposed to many training sessions, but none have been as supportive and beneficial as the Mentor Program provided by the TMX Finance Family of Companies. When I first started this journey of the Mentor Program I was a General Manager who thought I was ready for the next level.  What I learned was that I was a General Manager who craved knowledge, feedback and experience so that I could learn to develop the next generation of sales associates for our Company. I learned that there …
