The Executive Mentoring Program supports CEO’s, senior leaders and managing partners. Participants are matched with our unparallelled network of respected business leaders with extensive executive and directorship experience. The confidential independent advisor will help strengthen leadership, improve performance, increase confidence, drive more effective board management and offer greater insights on managing key business challenges.

Boards may also choose to offer mentors to new CEO’s to support them in their transition to leadership. Our experience has found that boards often believe that regardless of the quality of the board/CEO relationship and strength of leadership, the CEO needs their own independent sounding board, external to the organisation to discuss and test ideas and strategies. Boards see it as a risk management strategy.

Participants of the Executive Program have exclusive access to McCarthy Mentoring’s Leadership Lunches that bring together a select group of senior leaders from across the corporate, government and not-for-profit sectors. These boardroom lunches are held in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Perth.

Results from the McCarthy Mentoring Executive Program include:

  •      82% enhanced confidence and self awareness
  •      78% improved decision-making
  •      78% better manage challenging workplace situations
  •      64% enhanced overall performance
  •      62% improved stakeholder management including the board
