Framework - 100-day Mentoring Programmes
Board Whisperer® provides mentoring programmes to all leaders from Directors, through CxOs, executives and managers, to young graduates with high potential. Mentoring helps leaders push their own boundaries to the benefit of their career and the advantage of the organisation.
The core of mentoring consists in one-on-one sessions, which are intensive and personalised. The initial phase is an in-depth evaluation of the needs and wants of the mentee. This is followed by clear goal setting (what is expected to be achieved through mentoring). Goals must be stretching but achievable, measurable and relevant. During the sessions, acute listening and creative questioning aim at helping the mentees find a response to their own challenges. Each mentee is unique and the programme is tailored to the specific needs of the mentee and, where applicable, of the organisation.
To complement one-on-one mentoring, it is often beneficial to crystallise the teams. For that purpose, group mentoring, sharing and strategy sessions are offered; generally in the form of ½ day workshops. The focus is on individual strengths, and complementarity within the group.
