Welcome to the Global Management Mentors website ! You might have found yourself landing here by chance or by design. In either case you are probably at the right place if you are looking for direction on the topics specific to Project Management in the IT world or Leadership Talent and Development in a complex world of ours today !
Who Are We
We are a group of seasoned senior managers working in top MNCs like HP, Dell, Oracle, Microfocus etc leading out business units, R&D functions and project management functions. This group of us are all extremely passionate about the topics of management and leadership. Each with over 25 years of experience played different roles as managers and dealt successfully within many different management and leadership challenges. One day over coffee this idea sprung about why not bring our collective experience together to help people in this area. That is how Global Management Mentors was born !
Everyone Needs A Mentor
Looking back we all feel that having a mentor would have been really helpful. This need not be restricted to work alone. We all seek out mentors to help us in our lives when we are faced with difficult challenges. Such is the nature of life that we are constantly served with challenges. These challenges help us grow and learn in the process of dealing with them and we look forward to mentors to take us through those phases.
Today’s management challenges are far different and more complex. Projects are bigger, more complex, span across the globe and encompass a multitude of cultural and gender diversities. Whether you are newbie manager or a seasoned one, one would always look for advice. Who would you seek out? obviously the most experienced ones right? He or She should have the experience and knowledge to lead and guide you through the challenge.
We realized in our collective experience that many companies do not invest a lot in the systematic development of management talent. Many are accidental managers .They are thrown at challenges and left to deal with them.
A course here , a talk there and some content around a few topics. That is all we get to see. But can you become a good manager without investing your time and money on it? Can you become a great , inspiring leader without knowing how to go about it?
