As a leadership mentor, I work with leaders, seniors and bosses who may be business owners or are working in a more senior leadership or management role within an organisation.  I also work with those working towards that promotion or advancement, in both sharpening their skills, as well as getting them seen within the company.



Whether you’ve been a boss or manager five minutes or five years, it does have its challenges.  You have many skills and abilities, but possibly you’ve identified a few gaps, most notably “soft skills” that you’ve like to hone and improve.  You may wish to work on:

  • Transitioning from co-worker to boss (where applicable)

  • Managing your time better (or helping your team to do so)

  • Improving your organizational skills

  • Engaging with your team and helping them grow

  • Improving communication within the organization

  • Report writing, managing meetings or improving your presentation skills

  • Motivation, inspiration and attitude

  • Meeting expectations of your own bosses or other stakeholders

  • Dealing with, and managing frustrations

  • Improving confidence (if applicable)

  • Improving attitude and perception

  • Filling gaps that may exist in order for you to be a more effective leader within the organisation

  • Helping yourself, your team and even the company so that everyone is a ‘winner’.  I can help!

Interestingly 60% of new managers and leaders are given their role without any training; like being thrown the keys to a truck without any instruction on how to drive it.  Quite often the only advice you get is “Don’t stuff it up”.  However, that doesn’t mean you cannot request mentoring and training; your employer/supervisor wants you to succeed and will be open to ideas on how to make this work.  After all, if you succeed, it reflects well on them and ultimately improves the business’ bottom line.  Mentoring a new manager, or honing the skills of an existing manager or executive is an investment in that person and in the business.

Short term packages are available and these can be paid by the organization or self-funded.  Whilst the focus of Leadership Mentoring is on the individual, if we need to talk about business aspects, I’m happy to do that too – it’s purely a matter of asking.  Regardless of who pays for the mentoring, the sessions are confidential.  I service all areas of Australia and New Zealand mostly using Zoom to work with my clients – so location is no constraint.  Give me a call on 0411 622 666 if you are interested in finding out more.
