Andy Schmidt 6i Communication
Occupation : Business owner / Director
Industries : Consulting , Human Resource , Services
I left my corporate job after 23 years with the same organization because my employee engagement was off the charts (to the bottom left of it). I am not alone. A quick glance at employee engagement statistics points to a crisis of epic proportions at workplaces everywhere. People performing well below their capabilities inhibiting the organization's performance and resulting in high attrition rates.

I believe people should be happy and engaged at work and have all the tools they need to perform their jobs at the highest level.

Inclusive communication is key. Most businesses struggle to communicate with their frontline workers. We close those internal communication gaps for full alignment all-around and better business results in your hands.

I am looking for a "reverse mentor", meaning someone who is from a younger generation, a digital native who grew up with IT, Social Marketing, Inbound Marketing and Online B2B-business.

I do have lots to learn in that area for my business and a mentor with some hands-on experience in those areas would be mega-beneficial to me

Michael Boey Leadback Coaching & Consulting
I am not writing a conventional bio which can be found in my linkedin profile but instead I am offering my thoughts on why mentoring has called me.

What do you value at work and in life?
What do you want to achieve in your career?
What do you want to be world-class in?
Our well-meaning family members, friends, colleagues have likely posed these questions to us at some point in our lives. In fact, these questions can be rather motivational as they lead us to examine internally and clarify the direction we want to take in our life.
But what do you notice about the focus of each of the above questions? They are all about "you", the individual. Instead of asking what one wants to get better at, we can use more purposeful and systemic questions along the lines of:
"What do you need to get better at to serve your employees better?"
"Do you know what your peers say about your contributions?"
"Are you creating or diminishing value for the community you are operating in?"
This shift in focus from self to beyond turns conventional wisdom on its head. One will be hard-pressed to find an organisation that does not advocate individual KPIs and support individual development plans (IDPs). The achievement of individual KPIs can no longer be an end in itself. Neither should IDPs. Who else, besides ourselves, should benefit when we deliver the KPIs and develop ourselves? Who do we need to create value for? Whose burden is lightened because of us, and not despite us?

I believe in empowerment of women as a society can grow only when women grow! Being a ‘feminist’ to me means being gender equal where there is no criteria of gender before choices are made while providing opportunities. Apart from this I always am concerned about “what world we would want to leave for our future generations - be it values, beliefs, culture or environment. I strive to make small contributions to make this world a better place in my own way.

In my current role as a global leader operations for 27 countries across central and Latin America, Asia-Pacific and Africa with Conservation International, I empower and influence cross-cultural teams to translate organizational effectiveness and operations excellence into actions by spearheading the development and implementation of a operations strategy that provides effective on-the-ground support. I have consistently demonstrated moving the organizational needle from ‘status quo’ to ‘building and driving high performing teams which has enabled the organization to maximize its social and environmental impact.

Earlier in my career, I pivoted from for-profit and consulting organizations to multinational not-for-profit organizations, which not only brought me more personal fulfilment but also empowered me to better human well-being around the world.

My exposure to a variety of cultures has allowed me to closely observe and understand them through their different values and beliefs. I intend to share these insights through my work, interactions, public speaking, and coaching.

More broadly, one of my core values as a professional and a person is giving. This could be giving through my finances, my experience, my time or through my actions. I truly believe that I am blessed to be in a position to give. I bring this giving philosophy into action not just through an impact-driven organization but also by sharing my learning, wisdom and experience with individuals, leaders, and executives through coaching.

My work keeps me on my toes, but I love decompressing with a glass of wine, a great book or long walks in nature.
