A portfolio director currently sitting on six boards (see notes), Cheryl Hayman mentored Gina McClement in 2018-19 as part of Gina’s three step plan to gain a board role. While not the usual path, they met at a WOB event, and the rest they say, is history.
In this podcast Claire Braund explores the history of mentoring and talks to Gina and Cheryl to uncover why Gina wanted a mentor, how the journey changed once the process started and how the process ran from a practical sense.
While never formally mentored herself, Cheryl's passion for mentoring developed during her career as people took her under their wing. She talks about her mentoring philosophy and reverse approach, which isn't as you’d expect. But it gets results, with Gina adding, “I could not have asked for better outcomes than what we achieved”.
If you're considering a mentor or how you can develop your career, this podcast will provide some great ideas and inspiration. Warning, you're sure to be left wanting Cheryl as your mentor too.
