Join us for an inspiring and informative day:
Focussing on coaching and mentoring solutions, this conference brings together a wealth of practical knowledge and consultancy experience, to inspire and inform the development of the next generation of leaders within your organisation. Designed with the HR professional in mind, the conference will provide pragmatic coaching and mentoring interventions to help maximise the leadership development of individuals and teams within your organisation.
In an era of VUCA (volatility, uncertainty, complexity, ambiguity) what makes an organisation fit for the 21st Century? And what impact has the global financial/economic crisis had on organisational cultures?
Sadly some organisations have gone backwards and become more “controlling” culturally, whilst other organisations are courageously and riskily doing things differently hoping this will lead to survival and better things longer term. This requires a different mindset for the people, and mentoring can support that mental change.
I am saddened at the number of organisations that are still obviously male dominated and operate with an underlying patriarchal undertone, even with the enormous effort that has been put into creating equality in the workplace and publicity around the very positive impacts of having gender balance in senior leadership.
Sponsorship for Women
Formal and informal mentoring relationships exist in many organisations. Within these mentoring relationships the mentor may take many roles: being a role model, a sounding board, helping build networks and career support, sometimes simply being there to listen and challenge. However, linked to mentoring, but with clear differences is the role of a sponsor. Is it actually more beneficial for a woman who is seeking to break through the ‘glass ceiling’ to have a sponsor rather than an organisational mentor? Or perhaps she should be greedy and have both!
