Mentoring Programme Overview

The SG Leaders Network Mentoring Programme aspires to support the personal and professional growth of Singaporeans in this network. Through the programme, we also hope to create meaningful 1:1 connections between network members, and help them develop their social capital in the process.  

Programme Outline

The SG Leaders Network Mentoring Programme is a structured mentorship programme that will take place over 6 to 9 months. Mentors and mentees will meet over 3 to 6 sessions, with check-ins taking place at the start, middle and end of the programme.  

Mentee Profile

We welcome mentees from all industry – we are looking for mentees who are willing to get out of the comfort zones, take reasonable risks and take responsibility for their own learnings and career paths. Effective mentees are open minded, motivated and committed. Ideally, you would have worked minimally for 2 years or more and are looking to be mentored in following topic areas:  

  • Developing Global Mindsets / Working Abroad – Managing regional/global teams; developing global business acumen; intercultural empathy; considerations and preparations for overseas postings. 

  • New Roles / Jobs / Career Transition – Developing career paths; transitioning into leadership roles; leadership skills; soft skills; networking. 

  • Women in Leadership – Work-life integration; breaking barriers; agency; authenticity; connections; confidence; sponsorship; negotiations. 

  • Innovation – Sparking innovation in teams; driving an innovative culture; entrepreneurship; collaboration; co-creation. 

Why be a Mentee?

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.  

As a mentee, you get to take charge of your own personal/professional development with the benefit of a coach/teacher/guide who will share their personal experiences, insights and perspectives. Other benefits can include: 

  • Developing a sharper focus on where you need to grow professionally 

  • Developing yourself as “learner”  

  • Developing communication skills  

  • Learning from someone who is more experienced   

We are no longer accepting registrations for mentees, do consider joining our LinkedIn group via our Community page to hear more about our upcoming events and initiatives!
