Mentorship includes:

2 x 30 minute Zoom consults per month 

Ongoing contact through Whatsapp for any other needs, questions, support (E.g. leave a voice message about a situation you are facing and need support with, or send us a tricky work email to look over etc.)



Aimed at leadership teams of organisations, universities, institutions, companies, collectives, groups and departments.

Organisational mentorships work very closely one-on-one with everyone in the leadership/management of an organisation to guide them through holistic change. It is characterised by guidance, support, reflection, with a goal of self-determination (power related to self-governance and autonomy.)

As a mentee, I commit to:

  • Address any issues promptly and directly if my needs are not met at work and in the mentorship. 
  • Challenge the status quo and work to improve it. 
  • Respect the boundaries of others. 
  • Let my mentor know if I need to balance my work/life or take a break. 
  • Be patient because meaningful change takes time. 
  • Be visionary and ambitious in setting goals – maybe what I want/need does not exist yet, but it can be created. 
  • Find joy in the process of this mentorship. 
  • Abide by the decisions and rules we co-create.

Important to know

  • We believe in having a balanced work and life to prevent burnout. If you feel that your work/life is out of balance, you are stressed or you need some time for yourself, you can take a break from other activities. Just write to us and we will respect your needs for however long as you need. You can also pause your membership during this time.

  • We follow clear decisions and a code of conduct to help us achieve our goals. If we fail to do so, we will do a feedback round to find out why. Maybe we need to adjust the parameters to adapt to a new need. 

  • We communicate transparently, even if it is hard to say something in certain situations. If you are unsure, just say it. We will provide a safe space for you to feel free to be authentic. 

  • We aim to make this mentorship fun and joyful.
