Mentoring is most appropriate for high-achieving leaders and executives who have a positive attitude and a desire to improve themselves, but may not have a specific goal in mind. While coaching is appropriate for clients who do want to set some goals and parameters for their work with her, Leslie’s mentoring provides those who don’t with a kind of “wise elder,” an “eminence grise,” or the advisor who partners with the leader in anything that concerns him or her.
When Leslie mentors a leader, she is on call and available to brainstorm, collaborate, and guide them through any and all of their reflective and/or decision-making journey.
All Leslie’s mentoring programs are confidential. Each of her processes are personalized to the specific situation to insure that the client’s exact needs are met.
Among clients Leslie has mentored are the CEO of a major manufacturing company who rose to become the CEO of an international energy company; a high-powered attorney focused on furthering his legal career; the CEO and President of a successful artificial intelligence startup company who’d previously successfully started and sold several other internet companies; the CFO who moved through several major banks and international brokerages as his career soared, and a woman entrepreneur consultant who started out as an employee and ended up with a very successful consulting firm of her own.
