POWERMENTOR OVERVIEW

Celebrating 15 Years of Service

The greatest accomplishments of PowerMentor are written in the lives of those whom we’ve mentored through the years.  Having worked hard to change lives, one person at a time for over fifteen years, we are proud that our members are now impacting countless other lives through their own purposeful projects.  PowerMentor participants have risen to leadership roles, some going from high school dropouts to attorneys, teachers, executives or law enforcement.

WHAT IS LEADERSHIP

Theory That We Implement

Effective leaders of the future must be highly strategic thinkers who can focus on complex problems and opportunities, inspire others through superb communication, exercise exceptionally strong people skills, know when to take risk and desire to collaborate with others at fundamental levels of the enterprise.

Our Leadership Theory

Situational leadership is dependent upon specific circumstances that change, and with the changing situations, require different characteristics to effectively address the situation. Situational theory is applied through various disciplines allowing a leader to function in a diverse environment, providing the necessary structure to affect influence through leadership.

Transformational leadership encompasses a nurture component designed to motivate, inspire, and develop morale and performance of an individual or team. A sense of identity and purposeful life is a catalyst for individuals and team to thrive and substantially improve desired outcomes.

Mentor leadership involves a personalized approach to the development of an individual. The leader provides inspiration, support, open communication, and necessary feedback to foster growth in the mentee. The mentee aspires for self-development through an intrinsic motivation to accomplish desired outcomes.

  • Kevin LaChapelle has been a great mentor for many college students. He is the first Professor who has motivated and inspired me enough to shape my future. After his classes, I could actually notice drastic academic growth in myself as well as others. Kevin holds a unique style of unorthodox teaching which reflects his courage to avoid using the traditional style of teaching. Kevin is very knowledgeable, but humble.  I believe in his coaching style leadership. I have learned from him to be a coach, to motivate and encourage people and to bring out the best in them. I see him as a 21st Century leader and wish to follow his steps.

  • Thank you to PowerMentor for the Medical Outreach in Karen State (Myanmar). So many have promised to help our people, but they never come through. PowerMentor promised a lot, and came through with everything they said they would and more! The team that came was great! We are ready for your return…

  • The impact of PowerMentor cannot be understated. When I met Kevin, it was like winning the lottery. He believed in me more than I believed in myself! I went from high school dropout to returning back to earn my GED, attend San Diego State University, law school, and now I am a practicing attorney. Along the way, I was able to impact Kevin’s life as well by inspiring him to return to college. Both of our lives were forever changed…

    Continually call out the mentees improvements to build them up and reward their efforts.

    Powerful connections can result during text messaging and chat sessions.  Generational differences require us to adapt.
