Every FFL will be assigned a mentor (experience coach): a current or former director, supervisory officer and/or consultant with an excellent reputation and extensive experience (at least ten years) in positions of responsibility and authority in the business, government, healthcare or education sectors.
The mentor will set an example, give tips and advice and function as a learning supervisor/facilitator although they will focus entirely on personal development.
“Future Female Leaders know how to present themselves and play the power game. They learn to use humour effectively, to size up their surroundings and to be solid in their subject matter while being sensitive in their interpersonal contact. They can both dish it out and take it, they are graceful in both victory and defeat, and above all, they maintain a strong belief in themselves which they repeatedly live up to.”
