Expert Mentor

Supporting leaders to maximise their ability to guide and develop others through mentoring 

In creating this program, we were thinking about all those women who wouldn't necessarily consider themselves a leader or who aren't in formal management positions. There are so many women, of all ages, from all kinds of backgrounds, for whom leadership isn't the direction they want to take. This course is for them, all of them.

Program overview

Support the next generation of leaders as an expert mentor  

Behavioural and interpersonal skills are at the very heart of our everyday lives and form the basis of how we understand ourselves, how we interpret our experiences and the impact that we have on others. We understand that it’s not every woman’s desire to be a leader or manager in the traditional sense; but experience teaches us that these core capabilities, that are fundamental to leadership, are actually vital regardless of your role or responsibility level.
