Connect with a mentor to grow your leadership in NFP organisations
First, we meet with you to learn your specific goals, existing challenges and areas you’d like to improve in as a leader. Next, our orientation programme prepares you to maximise the mentoring relationship. Once completed, we connect you with a mentor who can help you meet your goals. We have a pool of mentors from all sorts of sectors, so you get a valuable outside perspective on your work.
From here, you and your mentor will meet at least once per month, for six months. Typically, you will discuss progress against your goals and any successes and challenges since the previous meeting. Then, you’ll make a plan for what you are going to achieve in the following month, which is reported on in the next session.
Over the mentoring period, you’ll be connected with a network of peers and other mentors to broaden your connections and increase your learning opportunities.
The focus is all about developing a mindset and approach that increases your effectiveness as a leader through improved capability, confidence and connectedness. Mentors focus on specific goals and the more holistic aspects of being a leader. This helps you to build a deep understanding of leadership and a toolbox that will serve you for years to come.
