SGLN Fellowship Mentoring Programme


Mar - Sep 2024 (7 Months)


Expected Commitment
5 sessions minimum


The Singapore Leaders Network (SGLN) Fellowship Mentoring Programme aspires to support the personal and professional growth of our SGLN Fellowship participants (i.e. the mentees). The programme aims to create meaningful 1:1 connections between the SGLN Fellows, senior global business leaders, and strengthen the social capital of leaders within the SGLN community.


For more information about the SGLN Fellowship and what it entails, please see here.

Programme Outline

This is a structured mentoring programme that will take place over 7 months. Mentors and mentees will meet over 5 sessions minimally, with check-ins taking place at the start and end of the programme.

Mentee Profile

We have assembled a pioneering cohort of SGLN Fellows that represent the diversity of the SGLN community. They comprise a group of mid-to-senior level Singaporean leaders who come from all walks of life (function, industry etc.). They have been identified as executives with strong potential and aspirations to take on global leadership roles within the next five years.


As part of their Fellowship journey, there will be four key learning outcomes that Fellows will get out of the programme. They will continue working with their companies, as well as their assigned mentors, to develop themselves in these four topic areas:

  • Display new perspectives and motivation to seek out regional/global job exposures to prepare for global leadership roles

  • Embrace a complex, ambiguous environment

  • Create and leverage networks and communicate with clarity and ‘heart’ for impact

  • Embrace and manage diversity by being sensitive to the cultural context and exercising cultural flexibility

Why mentoring?

Mentoring is a special partnership between two people based on commitment to the mentoring process, common goals/expectations of the partnership, and mutual trust and respect. It is a “get and give” experience with the goal of providing a rich and rewarding experience for both.


Due to the popular demand of our previous two runs of the mentoring programmes, and the excellent feedback we received from both mentees and mentors alike, we have now incorporated mentoring into the SGLN Fellowship itself.

At SGLN, we believe that mentees need to take charge of their own personal/professional development with the benefit of a mentor who will share their personal experiences, insights, and perspectives. Other benefits can include: 

  • Developing a sharper and more strategic focus on areas of professional development

  • Developing yourself as “learner” by adopting a continuous learning mindset with active investments in personal growth

  • Developing communication skills through personalised guidance across different interaction contexts

  • Cross-learning opportunities through sharing of experiences and insights that can enrich both mentee and mentor

About the Singapore Leaders Network

  • LinkedIn

Supported by the Singapore Economic Development Board (EDB) and managed by the Human Capital Leadership Institute (HCLI), the Singapore Leaders Network (SGLN) aims to prepare Singaporeans for global leadership roles. We aspire to help advance the social capital of Singaporean corporate leaders who can support one another on their professional and personal leadership journeys - whilst cultivating a vibrant and robust community. This is achieved through activities that enable members to learn, lead, and link including through large scale in-person events, smaller business networking sessions on various topics of interest, our recently launched SGLN Fellowship, mentoring, an Ambassador programme, as well as an online LinkedIn community.




The mentorship programme takes place over 7 months (April to September 2024). Mentoring pairs are expected to commit to at least 5 sessions, with each lasting at least 45 minutes. Further meetings will be at the discretion of both the mentor and mentee.

Ideally, the best mentoring relationships carry forward beyond the end of the formal programme commitments!


The application period for this run of the mentoring programme will close at 11.59pm (Singapore Time), Friday, 2nd February 2024. We expect the mentoring sessions will take place from March 2024 onwards.


We will connect you both via email and our designated mentoring platform. Meetings should be arranged between mentor and mentee at a time of their convenience. Ideally, meetings should be arranged in a neutral space with minimum distractions.
