Fast track to career and life success: join PWN Zug & Zurich Mentoring Program to reach your goals and make an impact on advancing global balanced leadership.  



Mentoring is Caring  

Whether you find yourself at a life/professional crossroad, you wish to proactively shape your ideal career journey, or simply you are one of 'those' who never want to stop learning, you will definitely benefit from our Mentoring Program.

Mentoring is caring: the mentee cares for continuous improvement. The mentor cares for placing her/his life and work experience, network and professional resources at others' service, to facilitate their smooth and effective personal and professional growth.

In 2020, we hand-matched 45 members with high profile mentors - from global executives representing Fortune 500 companies over to start-up entrepreneurs.

How to apply? 

Participation in the Mentoring Program is open exclusively for PWN Zug & Zurich members. You can apply to become a member here and join the Mentoring Program after you have paid the membership fee.

Participation in the program gives an opportunity to build a relationship of trust with an experienced expert outside of your own 'ecosystem' and gain his/her unbiased point of view on your career path. Read here some testimonials from former participants.

In addition, you can contribute to advancing balanced leadership globally and to make a lasting impact within the PWN Zug & Zurich community.

What will happen next ?

After the screening round, you will join the Mentees' candidate pool.

This year, PWN Zug & Zurich is further improving its process launching the 321 Leader Platform, which will allow to accelerate and optimize the Mentee/Mentor matching process. 

Once the matching is complete, you will be invited to join a Webinar Training to gain guidance on how to have a successful mentoring experience. 

The one-on-one professional mentorship takes place over a period of nine months.

One of PWN Global’s key missions is to encourage mentoring among members, and to encourage members to seek out senior mentors both within and outside their companies. PWN’s mentoring program is one of the “shining stars” of our network.

Who is it for?

Mentoring can be for anyone, wherever they happen to be on their career path. A mentor is a person with whom you share your professional situation and sollicit feedback from them regarding your career plans – consider the Mentor as a confidential 'sounding board' with whom you can bounce ideas around regarding possible career choices, in a neutral environment outside of your day-to-day workplace. The Mentor is not a coach – in other words she/he will provide feedback & suggestions regarding your longterm professoinal plans; she will not be guiding you on day-to-day tactical tasks to keep your current job performance on track. That’s what coaches do: focus on short-term results in your current position. Mentoring focuses on mid- to long-term career choices & goals.

Don’t assume, however, that a mentor must always be someone “older & wiser” than you are – a younger person can also mentor an older one – it’s often called “reverse mentoring”. and it can be an amazing mentoring experience as well.

When you ask someone to mentor you, remember to also think about who you could mentor….keep the virtuous circle going!

What we can do to support you

PWN provides an effective mentoring structure to ensure that you get the most out of your mentoring experience, by calling upon a wide range of mentors, ensuring the best possible match for you, and following up on your progress through the mentoring cycle to ensure that the experience is a positive one. The mentoring programs in PWN’s city networks is cited in surveys as one of the top elements of satisfaction for members of PWN.

How you will benefit

Mentoring provides a huge benefit to the “Mentee”, the person who is being mentored, by obtaining a fresh perspective on their career status, aspirations & goals from their Mentor. But did you know that mentoring also provides a significant benefit to the Mentor as well? Many Mentors have commented that their contribution as a Mentor also provided themselves with a positive new way of looking at their own career path, as well as an incentive to reflect on there they themselves were going and how it aligns with their own aspirations & goals. It’s really a “win-win” exchange between Mentee & Mentor.
