World Class Mentoring Program

This is a world-leading program that sees people from both the business world and elite sport collaborating and learning from each other. Mentoring skills are essential to how today’s leaders influence and inspire, and it is becoming increasingly clear that talented millennials are looking for leaders who can mentor them, as well as lead them. This means that mentoring skills should become an integrated component of a leader’s success.

The program is made up of five modules endorsed by UK Sport as part of the unique Ashridge Sports Business Partnership. It offers a rare opportunity to develop your mentoring skills alongside elite coaches and leaders from professional sports.

Mentoring talented people within a highly demanding environment requires a methodical understanding of how people flourish under pressure. The worlds of elite business and elite sport both generate intense pressure environments and yet can appear as two different ecosystems. However, there is much to be gained from understanding the winning approaches within each.

Who is this for?

Leaders responsible for the performance of others, and where their role is to accelerate their development and facilitate their achievements. Your leader knows that genuine engagement is the best way to create sustainable and effective working relationships, and they are willing to evaluate and renew their own leadership through a mentoring approach in order to release the best potential in others.
