Women Mentoring at Skillflow

One of the key outcomes of 2018 was an aggressive movement by women to promote Gender Equality and Upward Mobility for women. That is about to become even more important in the years to come and within corporations. As a result, it is important that your company endorses and offer the right mentorship program for them. It is our belief that Women mentoring women is the right approach Why? Well, Women in leadership positions in your company can offer guidance to young females who are starting their careers. Creating a women’s mentorship program provides every female employee the opportunity to offer or accept guidance. Also, Mentoring helps women ideate about what they will become. For women to be more empowered in the workplace, it’s crucial to have structured mentorships where women can learn from each other.

Why is this important?

Although a lot of progress has been achieved to bring women to an equal environment in the corporate world, there are few common women’s issues still prevalent in many workplaces:

  • Gender income inequality

    Females make much less than their male counterparts. That’s wildly unfair but many companies are now committed to closing internal pay gaps.

  • Work-family life balance

    Working mothers have two full-time careers. Unfortunately, too many companies still expect females to prioritize their job instead of being flexible for working parents.

  • Gender bias and stereotypes

    Some people still subscribe to generalizations, including gender biases. Employees should be judged on their professional qualifications and accomplishments, not labeled with stereotypes.

  • Career advancement barriers

    Men dominate the upper ranks of many companies. Many women are still passed over for promotions in favour of less-qualified males.

  • Harassment

    It’s not as out in the open as it once was but harassment towards women still occurs in the workplace.

More and more women are taking leadership roles in the corporate world. Connect female employees with mentors to help them grow their skills exponentially. Companies benefit from increased communication and a more skilled workforce, while employees feel more valued, more informed and readier to take on the world. Are you ready to help us mentor Women?

Executives in transition Mentoring at Skillflow

Every executive will be in transition at pivotal points in their career. Today's executives can anticipate transitioning as often as every 3-5 years. That could include an international role, a role with more people skills requirements, a staff role vs operational role, etc. At Skillflow, we want to help those executives be successful in their new roles, through effective mentoring!

Each transition comes with many challenges; new colleagues/peers, stakeholders, company politics and culture, networking, proactive upskilling, who are you in this new role? Sometimes a new geography, new people to manage, etc.

Most people in transition will have the initial feeling of excitement and enthusiasm, shortly followed by moments of I’m not sure I can do this. Our mentors and coaches will help you navigate those uncertainties and guide you in the right direction. We will answer questions like:

  1. What do you do really well in your current role that you want to import into the new role?
  2. What old habit will you have to leave behind? What will you have to stop doing in the new role?
  3. How will you use your networks to make them fit the needs of the new role?
  4. How will you make your mark in the first 90 days? How will you ensure the support and constructive feedback from your team?
  5. How can you gain an accurate understanding of the legacy your predecessor has left?
  6. How can you leverage your role to maximum effect while it lasts (especially in the first month!)?
  7. How can you engage with your new direct reports so they are genuinely positive about the idea of radical change, if it is required?
  8. What are you most afraid of / worried about in this new role? What two things could you do that would boost your confidence in this respect?
  9. How genuinely aligned are your expectations of the role and those of your new boss? What have you done to facilitate a re-definition of the role, once you have fully understood it?
  10. What will make the difference between just doing this role and relishing it?
  11. What are your learning and career goals from this role? (What is it a launch-pad for?)
  12. What can you influence in this role, which will have a wider, positive effect on your division, company, or society?
Digital transformation Mentoring.

Digital transformation is the process of using digital technologies to create new — or modify existing — business processes, culture, and customer experiences to meet changing business and market requirements. This reimagining of business in the digital age is digital transformation.

It transcends traditional roles like sales, marketing, and customer service. Instead, digital transformation begins and ends with how you think about, and engage with customers. As we move from paper to spreadsheets to smart applications for managing our business, we have the chance to reimagine how we do business — how we engage our customers — with digital technology on our side.

For small businesses just getting started, there’s no need to set up your business processes and transform them later. You can future-proof your organization from the start. Building a 21st-century business on stickies and handwritten ledgers just isn’t sustainable. Thinking, planning, and building digitally sets you up to be agile, flexible, and ready to grow.

As they embark on digital transformation, many companies are taking a step back to ask whether they are doing the right things. At Skillflow, we will connect you with the proper combination of Digital Transformation Mentors, some younger than you, to help you achieve an effective business operation in the new world.
