Beaumont People LEAD Mentoring Program
Applications have closed for 2021
Lead, Empower, Aspire and Develop
At Beaumont People, we exist to connect people with organisations that empower them to do meaningful work and to create more opportunities for meaningful work in Australia. We believe in placing people first. It’s how we work with our clients and candidates. It’s the way we contribute to the communities in which we are involved. It’s the focus on ensuring our people thrive, not just succeed. This is what sets us apart.
In line with our purpose and people-centred ethos, we are committed to reinvesting back into our clients and the sectors we operate in by way of our Beaumont People LEAD Mentoring Program.
The purpose of LEAD
We have supported over 350 professionals in their development as a leader in the past 3 years, with a hybrid mix of online training and development plus access to mentee and mentor resources and today’s biggest business influencers through our exclusive networking events.
LEAD was created to invest in leaders to enable them to enhance and build leadership awareness and capabilities, and to help foster relationships across the sector in which they operate. This program is all about guiding and growing your existing leadership skills, either as a mentor or as someone being mentored – the ‘mentee’.
The LEAD 2021 program is set to be bigger than ever with the addition of a Strengths Profile Assessment including a debrief and coaching session for all mentees to help shape personal, leadership and career success; as well as tailored group workshops that delve deep into current leadership challenges and opportunities. We are so excited to once again, be delivering this program to you via the Art of Mentoring platform.
As our program, events, interactive workshops and networking are all delivered virtually, the LEAD Mentoring program is available to leaders and organisations across Australia.
When you join the LEAD Mentoring Program you will receive:
A mentee-mentoring pairing based specifically on your needs and requirements
A Strengths Profile Assessment and one-on-one debrief session for all mentees, valued at over $600
Access to over 100 resources designed to help you get the best out of your mentoring relationship
Exclusive live and on-demand LEAD participant-only webinars on topics such as Goal Setting, Growth Mindset, Leadership and more
Workshops tailored to the needs of LEAD participants
Exclusive networking events to enable the sharing of ideas, work through common issues and connect with peers from a wide range of industry sectors
