Our Cohort Mentoring commences with a discovery phase which includes confidential conversations with the key stakeholders of the programme in order to ensure we understand the real objectives of the investment. We use these conversations to inform the co-creation of the programme and to ensure all stakeholders’ opinions are taken into account. In our experience for real accelerated performance to take place it is necessary for the senior leaders of the business to place a real priority on the work and set clear expectations of the outcomes.
The cohort will be supported through both 1:1 and group work to ensure that progress is made against joint and individual objectives. Each individual will be matched with a Mentor for their 1:1 mentoring and coaching. This work is the thread that runs through the cohort programme ensuring that the principles are explored and embedded in real world challenges. This will lead to a profound behavioural shift in line with the company’s strategic imperatives. We use a strengths-based approach that ensures that each individual understands how to maximise their contribution. It also enables participants to understand and appreciates their colleagues and focus their attention on achieving the collective objectives.
Whilst maintaining individual confidentiality, we ensure that there is a feedback loop between the group and 1:1 sessions to feed in key themes and learnings throughout.
