CMi has a distinguished group of international Chairmen mentors.
Many of our mentors have run large global companies and know business leadership from all angles; as CEOs, Executive Committee members, Non-Executives and Chairmen. This holistic experience gives them broad and diverse perspectives on the challenges of leading large complex businesses.
OUR SOLE MISSION IS TO HELP THE BEST LEADERS
BECOME EVEN MORE SUCCESSFUL
One of the Board’s most important responsibilities is to ensure the company has the best possible succession bench.
Our mentors are chairmen who have overseen numerous CEO succession processes and are acutely aware of what the board, investors and the market require in a successful CEO. As many of our chairmen have been CEOs they also understand the immense operational and personal pressure a candidate is under.
Chairman Mentors International provides mentoring by very seasoned Chairmen who are themselves former CEOs and have successfully led large organisations. The mentor enables the CEO to test ideas with a highly experienced and impartial confidant, providing a fresh perspective and valuable second opinion.
Chief Financial Officers play a crucial role in the boardroom and the success of the company. CFOs require a sophisticated set of cognitive, behavioural and relationship skills unlike in any other role.
Our mentors have experience and a deep understanding of what becoming a successful Chairman involves. Shaping the Board, engendering trust and teamwork, whilst remaining ruthlessly objective and coping with the unexpected, are just some of the skills they have learned to master.
"The mentoring relationship is typically one of sounding board and trusted confidant. Personal chemistry is vital and relevant experience essential for the interaction to be both valuable and engaging. It is a two-way exchange where each benefits, both professionally and personally, from the conversation."
Sir Roger Carr, Chairman of BAE Systems plc
