Traditional training and development focuses on one-off interventions with the help of cementing learning within a very short timeframe. However our brain is programmed to learn through experience and as such Aquitude’s Athena mentoring program is designed to offer experiential learning opportunities between entrepreneurs and corporate professionals.
This program is intended to enable both:
- peer mentoring
- reverse mentoring, depending on individual and organisational requirements.
We call this Mutual Mentoring, where both the entrepreneur and the corporate professional mentor each other with pre-agreed outputs; so both parties benefit with specific learning opportunities. It is a helpful relationship based upon mutual trust and respect. It is less of a formalized professional relationship and more of a structured learning partnership.
Hands on experiential learning through One-to-One Mentoring: The most powerful component of the Athena Mutual Mentoring Program is the direct access to the knowledge, experience, and insight of
a more-experienced professional from another organization.
- Non-executive / advisory positions in cutting edge companies
- Targeted skills-development in Aquitude’s Skills Academy delivered virtually and on-person
- One-one coaching in personal areas of development such as Managing Transitions, Diffusing Confilct, Managing Difficult Conversations, Coaching yourself to the top, etc
- Vibrant and powerful connections: Creating strong networks is one of the keys to professional success for both individuals and the organizations they represent. The Athena Mutual Mentoring Programme provides an exceptional opportunity for mentees to engage with and learn from a collection of accomplished emerging leaders in the business community.
- The Athena Mutual Mentoring Alumni Network: alumni to this programme have the opportunity to join this exclusive network of accomplished business leaders from across the globe.
Note: If your organisation has between 5 and 249 employees, you may benefit from a £1000 grant towards the Athena Programme.
