Whether you need support with a career move, running a start-up, developing leadership skills, navigating company politics, building self-confidence, returning to work or negotiating a contract – our unique and growing network of over 220 mentors can support you.
Many successful men and women admit a great mentor was a key factor in their success. Our mentoring programme was developed with these advocates to ensure real impact. Mentoring through the INSEAD network can be an effective tool in fulfilling your aspirations from furthering your prospects and building a network to getting pragmatic professional advice and guidance on your next step.
Mentoring is not new. It can be traced back to Homer’s Odyssey: Odysseus matched an older, wiser, more experienced person (his name was Mentor) with a young less experienced one (his son Telemachus). Despite this history very few mentoring programmes are effective – the matching process is often subjective or haphazard and the environment not impartial. The Impact Mentoring programme has, in contrast, been specifically designed to ensure it is impartial, objective and valuable.
