Mentoring refers to a face-to-face learning and development partnership between someone with vast experience and someone who wants to learn. It is a process for the transmission of modern knowledge, social capital, and psychosocial support relevant to your professional development.
The focus is on developing your insight and efficacy as a whole person, using broad techniques that require wisdom in order to be applied appropriately.
At SMG, we use modern psychological frameworks, methodologies and processes to improve communication. We offer mentoring in an environment of complete confidentiality, where you, the executive, are given the opportunity to explore sensitive and key issues in order to gain deeper awareness and understanding.

The benefits of our mentoring services and expertise for individuals and organisations include:
“My mentor is one of those rare individuals who concentrates on who you are, not what you want or what you’ve done. His belief in the importance of character and personal congruence to professional aspiration are enormously valuable. He has provided me with perspective, with counsel, with challenge and with opportunities.” – Financial Services Executive
“What I’ve enjoyed about mentoring has been the opportunity to develop and challenge myself, and my mentor has been instrumental in giving me the necessary confidence and self-belief. She has great skill in cutting through the noise and excuses, and I’ve gained insights about my reactions and behaviour and what I can do to create my own outcomes and results. My mentor’s combination of senior executive experience and business acumen, coupled with knowledge of human behaviour… helped me analyse and navigate commercial realities and scenarios. Having her as a mentor is a major contributor to my transition from a managing focus and mindset, to becoming a leader and developing my strategic capability.” – CEO, Retail
