Mentoring & Coaching

Mentoring the next generation of managers is very important to our profession.

Aimed at recruiting, encouraging, and supporting those who aspire to move into chief administrative officer positions with cities, counties, and other local governments, Minnesota’s Mentoring and Coaching program is modeled on and borrows from those of the International City/County Management Association, Cal-ICMA (California), and others who have taken the lead in this area.

The Mentoring and Coaching program matches volunteer coaches (seasoned veterans of the profession) with those who aspire to become managers. Coaches will share their one-on-one time and professional expertise to support the professional development of tomorrow’s managers.
