The world has changed at an unprecedented pace over this past year, driving innovation and virtual connectivity like never before. Having sources of wise counsel and experienced sounding-boards has always been important to senior executives, but never more so than in the last 12 months, as they have grappled with the unparalleled challenges of Covid.
CMi’s ability to adapt by embracing virtual mentoring gave leaders access to truly unique and invaluable external input from highly experienced global Chairs at the time of greatest need. Virtual mentoring has brought a host of benefits to our mentees, which include saving travel time, enabling flexibility around scheduling and most importantly: providing access to the world’s top Chairs and find the ‘the right mentor’ irrespective of location.
Based on positive feedback from our mentees and mentors, our mentoring sessions will be a hybrid of face to face and virtual meetings.
CMi has formed a new partnership with Maritana Partners, CMi Maritana, which will provide access to world-class, international mentoring support for Australia and New Zealand’s most senior executives and Directors. Maritana Partners is a leading governance and leadership advisory firm and act as trusted advisers to Chairs, Boards and CEOs on issues related to governance, search, leadership, capability and performance in Australia and New Zealand. At the heart of the CMi proposition is enabling strength in leadership. This is a vision CMi shares with Kok Kong, Jane, Grant, and the team at Maritana Partners.

One of the Board’s most important responsibilities is to ensure the company has the best possible succession bench.
Our mentors are Chairs 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 CMi’s Chairs have been CEOs, they also understand the immense operational and personal pressure a candidate is under.
CMi provides mentoring by very seasoned Chairs 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 Chair 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."
