Mentoring at the top level of the organisation is not a widely communicated subject. However, there is a growing trend of directors and executives looking for mentors to support the transition into these roles and to help them build successful leadership practices. Additionally, large organisations are focusing on mentoring top level talents to retain, develop and accelerate their careers for succession purposes. In this session we will share the knowledge we have accumulated through research reviews and through practical case stories from individual directors and executives and from mentoring programmes in organisations. Additionally, we will present and discuss the definition of executive mentoring and why this is especially valuable and effective for directors and executives.
