What I share …
Mentoring, Coaching, and Mindset…
In 1978, “Harvard Business Review” published an article titled ‘Everyone Who Makes It Has a Mentor,’ which opened the doors to mentoring in organizations. Numerous other articles, books, examples, and research have underscored the profound influence and benefits of having a mentor or having mentoring in the DNA of your organization.
On the one hand, mentoring looks like a straightforward process; you need to find a more experienced person, and that’s it. However, in practice, it’s not always that simple.
– How can we enhance our company’s culture, improve employee well-being, and foster employee recognition through effective mentoring programs?
– How do we evaluate our mentoring program?
– How can we supercharge its effectiveness?
– What steps can we take to resolve issues that have already arisen within your company’s mentoring program?
– Where can I find a mentor outside the organization?
– How do I choose the right mentor?
– What’s the key to building an effective mentoring relationship?
– How can I succeed as either a mentor or mentee?
– And finally, how can we maximize the benefits of mentoring for both individuals and the organization?
Drawing from my experience as a mentee, mentor, manager, coach, and mentoring program manager, along with insights from leading experts in the field and research findings, I specialize in assessing already existing mentoring programs, designing new ones, and, consequently, nurturing a mentoring culture within organizations.
I also dedicate a portion of my time to supporting women who aspire to transform their professional lives but still hesitate to take that leap.

After the university, I started my teaching career. It was interesting! But just for…6 years. Then I began to ask myself, “Is this all there is?”.
I liked my colleagues and my workplace. I liked my job. But I jumped into the routine. I was bored. Continuing in the same position for the rest of my life was not attractive.
I had to find some solution. But I was also stuck because of my inner voice. In my head, again and again, sounded the simple phrase – “You are not capable of doing anything else! You studied to be a teacher and have experience as a teacher. You never will be hired for any other position!”
Later, working as a project manager, I remembered with the smile that my inner voice. And I was happy that I overcame it. I already knew by then that I was capable of changing my career. As any of us, if we wish so.
Once, I read the announcement about the program manager position in our organization. I immediately decided that it was not for me as I didn’t match all criteria 100 %. The candidate had to be working in the company for a minimum of 1 year. I was working for 11 months.
This moment that I didn’t match 100 % of all criteria almost stopped me after a few years again.
In both situations, I won the competition and I got the job.
Now, I helping corporate women to change jobs, by using my experience and my program “SHIFT” – 5 Simple Steps to start changing your career.
