Accelerating performance in today’s fast moving business environment is imperative.
According to CIPD research, 96% of individuals receiving coaching and mentoring said it had a positive impact on their performance, and 87% said it had a direct positive impact on organisational performance.
Not all candidates respond well to the thought provoking and self awareness approach that an executive coach tends to take. An alternative is to use external mentors to develop high potential staff in need of guidance as they prepare for their next career step.
Mentors are typically executive level veterans who have established themselves at the CxO, Directorial or strategic level and are willing to share their experience and know how with those preparing for such a step and appreciate more of a "in the trenches" view point of someone who has been there and done it.
