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?

Ning Pei Chua
Branding. Experiential UX design & Portal Management. Impact Entrepreneur. Self Development. Visual StoryTeller.

Curiosity and (perhaps) ambition brought me to step out of my comfort zone to pursue a dream to be a (social) entrepreneur. A work-in-progress, with a wealth of experience from learning, unlearning, and relearning. I could have been 'comfortable' if I were to stay put in adv, I went half-circle, chose to embark on a different path, for which I'm not (really) sure where it may lead. I stumbled (many times), rise up and learnt, motivated by passion and drive to make a small difference, to impact someone, in my own little unique way.

Looking to leverage all the knowledge, teachings, skillsets I have learnt in social impact, business development, design and facilitation, partnership, community engagement, tech and branding to good use. Passionate to unleash human potential, to support people in the journey of self-discovery and positive transformation, to fulfill dreams and aspirations.
