Loading Information
​​​​​​​​​Learn effective mentorship skills for agile & sustainable personal and organisational success.

Brought to you by Coaching@GIBS – the business of being human

GIBS Leader as Mentor course recognises that the gifts of knowledge, experiences, stories, and wisdom belong to both the mentor and the mentee. Mentorship is an opportunity for shared learning. This course shifts the concept of mentoring as a traditional teaching relationship to one in which a learning partnership is created between the mentor and mentee.

 It highlights the role of leader as mentor and offers an experiential approach to assisting leaders in becoming highly effective mentors. In addition, it helps organisations develop effective mentoring courses and cultivate a culture of collective learning, whilst simultaneously creating an enabling environment for employees to become fit for the future of work. –

This course is led by GIBS' Professional Associate, Laura Malan. Laura is a highly respected executive coach, facilitator, lecturer, strategic consultant, intervention designer and programme director in the field of leadership and organisational development with over 20 years' experience in over 35 countries over 6 continents. 

Leader as Mentor – a generous way of leading today and in the future.
