Building Dynamic Mentorships to Advance Gender Collaboration

RECIPROCAL MENTORING LAB

Our Innovative Approach

INVEST IN YOUR BEST TALENT

Reciprocal mentoring is a powerful and mutually beneficial exchange in which both mentees and mentors learn from each other and improve their professional performance.

The Reciprocal Mentoring Lab (RML) is a breakthrough approach from Greatheart Consulting for advancing women and male allies into senior leadership, while equipping executives with the tools they need to mentor and sponsor all colleagues more inclusively. 

The RML delivers a competitive advantage for retaining talent and increasing collaboration among employees at all levels. It positions a company to grow a gender inclusive leadership culture by helping its leaders build the skills, tools, and broader perspective necessary to lead more effectively within their teams and organizations.

The Five Steps

THE RML PROCESS
