Cross mentoring within the female leadership programme ANNA+Cie stands for systematically building a sparring partnership between the ANNA (the participant) and her external mentor aiming at supporting and guiding her personal and professional development.
To us, cross mentoring means bringing together mentors and mentees from different organisations and non-competitive industries. We personally handpick each mentor to meet the mentee’s individual needs. This perfect matching of mentees and mentors is ANNA+Cie’s decisive differentiator. The careful assessment of the mentees and their needs based on the individual interview and references guarantees a fruitful collaboration between mentee and experienced executive.

We pay particular attention to the selection and evaluation of our mentors with respect to their professional skills and personal suitability.

We need to get away from the war stories of the lucky few. They are not specifically appealing to the majority and that’s where we really want to go.

Widespread support comes from international top managers, from established global groups, family companies and entrepreneurial growth organisations.

The ANNA mentors also greatly benefit from their interaction with ambitious, talented women and from each encounter take potential new insights back into their sphere of influence.
