 How does a mentor work with chief executives?


In this video for Merryck & Co, Pat gives her views on

  • The role of a chief executive – who is expected to know all but generally is only good at a few things

  • How a mentor can help fill in the gaps of understanding and loneliness of leaders

  • How mentors help – particularly by being there to listen and to help them think and to improve the general level of management

  • What can you expect as outcomes for mentoring – business leaders achieving more for their business

“Go and listen to the young people in your organisation. Take them seriously and promote the bright ones.” Those are the words of Pat Chapman-Pincher, FTSE CEO Mentor at Merryck & Co, who spoke on the impact of technology on leadership and talent, and warned that companies aren’t fully grasping the changes technology will bring to the workplace.
