Practical approach to mentoring at the board level


This mission of The Luxembourg Director's Institute is to promote the profession by developing its members into highly qualified, effective and respected Directors. As part of our mission, we wish to support mentoring which helps impart the wisdom of our more experienced members onto our younger ones. Mentoring can also help improve the quality, quantity and diversity of individuals ready to assume the important role of board directorships. Toward this end, ILA has created an innovative Workshop on Mentoring by a world leading expert aimed at both potential Mentors and Mentees.

The key elements of the workshop content, over 4 hours including breaks, are:

  • Fundamental principles of mentoring
  • Key roles
  • How to manage the relationship over time
  • Core skills and advanced skills
  • What to do if it isn’t working
  • Opportunities to practice


We recommend that participants create a “frustration-elation log” – a diary of things that have pleased and irritated them in their job roles – for the two weeks before the programme, to use as a source of issues to explore in the practice sessions.
