The Adelaide Business School believes that in order to give our MBA students the Adelaide Advantage, it is essential that they have the opportunity to enhance their leadership skills through self-development; that they are networked and connected with industry and that they interact with business leaders to build capability through mentoring.

As a result, The Business School in conjunction with the Business School Advisory Board, have created a mentoring program with inspirational leaders across Adelaide, including David Michell of Michell Wool, Malcolm Jackman, Chief Executive of Defence SA and Jim Whalley, CEO of Nova Group.  Mentors are volunteers, motivated by an interest in giving back to their profession.

Created by Christine Locher, Jim Whalley, Paul Crawford and Natalie Thompson in the Business School, the program was launched to students in the Leadership Lab and to Mentors in Skydeck. The program will run from April to December.

Mentors will help influence and shape student leadership capability through:

•    Providing critical feedback in key areas such interpersonal style and leadership skills
•    Providing insights on what is needed to grow professionally
•    Challenging their self-limiting beliefs
•    Providing a confidential, objective sounding board with whom they can share challenges as well as successes

This is an exciting new program for the MBA students in the Business School.
