Leadership Mentoring

A dedicated partnership for overcoming 

leadership challenges

Leadership sits at the heart of every organization. It translates the purpose and vision of the company into clear direction, maintains engagement and creates an environment that team members are motivated and inspired to work in.


On the other hand, it is a very challenging and often lonely journey.
I work with leaders to develop their skillset; increase their competency and confidence in their role they have now by providing advice, perspective and genuine experience that supports them to overcome their current and potential future challenges.
We build a close and confidential relationship where we discuss hard, critical leadership topics and how they are relevant to their success.
We identify and clarify goals and develop and action plan to reach those goals.
Using elements of advisory, experience sharing, coaching and training, or simulation together we generate confidence, strenghten communication and interpersonal skills, talk through difficult topics in a safe environment and build a plan that supports growth of them as well as their teams and organization.

while we continuously build confidence, self-awareness, empathy, self-control using combination of advice, critical discussion, debate, coaching and situational role plays.

The process


  • First, I try to understand the environment in which the leader works within. Then approaching the situation the leader faces from multiple perspectives, really trying to map out what is visible and what the root causes are. Doing that really gets to the heart of the problem.
  • Once we agree on that we move forward with strategies and techniques that I either explain and simulate with you, or I use coaching to help unlock the already known knowledge.
  • Then it's applied to the problem and we see what the results are.

Throughout the process which might take anything from 1 hour to multiple months - depending on the problem - we are constantly looking at ways in which the leader has developed or could develop as a result of working together.

As a result of mentoring you will


  • develop competencies and a leadership mindset
  • maximize your ability to lead your team
  • develop a strategic mindset and approach to developing your team
  • focus on your personal improvement from a leadership mindset perspective
  • develop interpersonal communication skills, knowledge transfer, understanding the impact of leadership styles, delegation, empowerment, employee motivation and engagement, staff development, delivering feedback and creation of an environment that builds trust and supports growth with psychological safety

Why mentoring?


It's a relationship that is built upon trust and respect for the mentee. A good mentor takes the time to understand your environment, the relationship you have with yourself, your role and the worries, anxieties or areas of anticipation you experience. Using a range of techniques, including coaching, advisory, training, practice and experience sharing the mentor's goal is to enable the mentee to deliver positive and confident results that are sustainable in both short and longer terms.

Clients say about working with me

  • Yavor Kitanov
    “ During a project to get a leadership development program up and running for our shared service centres in Bulgaria, Fraser brought know-how, support, direction, coaching and encouragement to the project. His experience, insight and down to earth approach made the program set-up and deliverables to flow more effectively and strategically. He has that genuine ability to take complex cases or examples and present them in a simplistic and easy to digest manner. Fraser is also a great mentor and even now after he's left the company, people still ask me if he can be reached out to for advice.”

    “Fraser started mentoring me in the middle of very challenging period of my professional life and I believe he contributed to the way I have managed and taken my lesson from the situation. He has shaped my vision by other perspectives brought to the picture. You can rely on Fraser that what he is giving you is his honest opinion backed by the years of his experience in evaluation or leading people in miscellaneous environments, and his genuine will to help you progress. Some sessions are awaking, some sessions work like an injection - they might be difficult to take at a particular moment, but they make you think afterwards and eventually move you to an action. I am grateful for our cooperation and I can say Fraser is one of not so many people in the professional area I have a genuine respect for. Thank you!”
