As per Harvard Business Review, two-thirds of 57 women CEOs said they didn’t realize they could be CEO until someone else told them. The recognition by a boss or mentor was key to sparking long-term ambition in many of the women. It helps in building confidence and courage to drive mentee’s career who might be feeling stuck.

You are not a leader if you are not developing leaders, mentoring is a great way to develop more leaders. People development must be a priority for all managers. Their ability to grow their team members should be part of their yearly performance review. This can be easily enforced by instituting a structured mentoring program.

This workshop will equip attendees with mentoring best practices, available resources, ability to understand the unique situation of your mentee and be able to handle them. Varsha and Mark both are mentor and coach themselves and bring years of corporate experiences. They both come from two very different industries which will help understand cross-industry scenarios for mentors and mentees. Our attendees are senior executives themselves from different industries. Learning from each other’s experience in a session guided by experts is the best way to learn.
