Executive Leadership Mentoring:
Mentorship with a Competitive Advantage


 

The world of business is changing more than ever before. The future is no longer some place you go, it is to be created, together.

 

 
 

There’s no question that future leaders will need constant leadership mentoring. As the business environment becomes more complex, they will increasingly turn for leadership guidance for help in comprehending how to act in difficult situations. This includes more than just influencing behaviours; - leadership whispering mentorship becomes an essential part of the leader’s learning process, providing knowledge, opinions, and judgment in critical areas.

What is most apparent in today’s society is the sheer diversity and complexity of everyday life. Today’s leaders are leading with questions, changing the conversation, inviting challenge and demonstrating the powerful humility and self-awareness required to truly be a genuine leader. Without a doubt, we live in uncertain times; it is often difficult to learn how to learn differently, to evolve and to achieve. Developing high potential, facilitating transformation, acting as sounding board, and addressing behaviours are major topics through which I guide individuals around the world in their leadership positions. Because we do manage failures badly, - we often have difficulties to overcome and get into a mode of defend our ego instead. This means we do everything possible to protect our image and our reputation to prove to ourselves and others that we are not really stupid. But the truth of the matter is that such behaviour stands in the way to improve and making progress.

How often do we challenge ourselves with this critical question: what kind of leader do we want to be in the 21st century? Self-empowerment is a personal goal; therefore, we seek emotional connection and empowerment in almost all areas of life. But why do we ignore this in business? Let’s address this question head on with freshness and alacrity: How can I be more of a leader? The fact is, our priorities are clearly shifting: emotional values and taking time to think and dream are increasing in importance, necessary to comprehend and feel things with more clarity.

The Executive Leadership Mentoring Approach: Long-Term Results

I am a trustworthy sounding board. My approach and success are characterised by collaboration and partnership with clients and a concentrated, clear focus on achieving outstanding results in areas in which we are certain to truly bring quality and value.

My executive leadership interventions offer a transformational approach to leadership mentoring rather than a transactional approach. Instead of merely effecting short-term behavioural changes, I assist transforming mind-sets, opinions, beliefs and understanding that make the difference between short-term change and long-term transformation that lead to profound comprehension.

It is these ingredients that result in successful leadership mentoring, enabling individuals to step out of their comfort zone, to change, to ignite a fierce desire to learn how to learn differently and to evolve. It is essential to feel good and have the right match – which is absolutely key to the success of the leadership mentoring. Without a strong feeling of trust, performance will not develop.

As a leadership whisperer, I tackle unconventional topics that bring clients to a level of better comprehension: asking unusual questions, addressing individual behaviours, exploring subjective experiences, tackling difficult and sometimes unpleasant issues at work and at home, focusing on behaviour changes required to be a successful leader. We guide clients into discovering their own path.
