Virtual Mentoring Accelerator

Mentoring initiatives are a proven component in the development of high achievers. As reported in Harvard Business Review

  • 84% of CEO’s surveyed credited mentors with helping them avoid costly mistakes
  • 84% reported becoming proficient in their roles faster due to mentoring
  • 68% reported making better decisions after participating in mentoring programs 

Engagement is essential to high performance.  Mentoring initiatives build team engagement in “normal” work environments, but this is not a “normal” time. The virtual workplace is not just our current reality – it’s very likely a part of our future. 

Your team is hungry for connection. They seek development opportunities and professional growth, now more than ever. Leaders are seeking new ways to connect and lead teams inside this virtual context.

Mentoring is the perfect solution. Learn to provide it virtually.

Virtual Mentoring Accelerator is a 4-week incubator designed to help you successfully launch a virtual mentoring initiative inside your organization. Inside this supportive learning community, you will develop your personalized launch playbook – empowering YOU to give your team the virtual mentoring experience needed to thrive and grow in a virtual environment. 


  • Group coaching sessions full of learning, dialogue, meaningful exercises to spark thought and guide your efforts.
  • Individual coaching sessions (1:1) with mentoring experts to support and direct you as you take action.
