CEO MENTORINGOver the years of growing my own companies, there were thousands of major and minor decisions that determined degree of success. I had a major advantage - a mentor. All CEO's and presidents experience normal "isolation thinking". Who can you actually trust to talk with, be 100% honest, and get feedback from that has the experience and wisdom you need at critical times? They must be objective, outside your company, with "hands-on" experience, so their council is solid and independent.
My thanks for their mentorship to:
Gerald Hobbs, ex-Chairman Of Cominco Mining Group
Maurice Mayer, ex-Chairman Of Canadian National Railways Pension Funds & Real Property Board.
I have been mentored and been a mentor for successful presidents. I enjoy this advisory role and find it rewarding to assist a leader to grow.
