MAP Institute

The MAP Institute provides collaborative mentoring advisory panels for business leaders.  MAP is an acronym for Mentoring Advisory Panel.

Our members meet online monthly to discuss and solve challenges in their business journey, keeping each other accountable to achieve their goals.  Each panel is facilitated by an experienced chair who has accumulated a wealth of business acumen through their own journey.

Are you challenged by our current economic climate?  The MAP Institute has mentors who have survived through the 2020 CFC (Coronavirus Financial Crisis, COVID-19 pandemic), the 2008 GFC (Global Financial Crisis) and even the early 1990s Australian recession.

If you want to learn from those that have faced the toughest economic challenges of recent times, then apply for one of our upcoming scholarship programs.

Mentoring, not coaching

Coaching is a common form of development in which a coach supports a client in achieving specific goals, tasks or objectives.  Think of a traditional athletic coach engaged to assist a swimmer to compete at the Olympic Games.  This differentiates itself from mentoring in that mentoring isn’t individually task focused, but rather enhances one’s acumen through general holistic development.  Think of a successful property magnate sharing their insights into how to read and identify potential investments.

Mentoring is a relationship between someone with vast experience (who is willing to transparently share their acumen) and the mentee (who is eager to learn). The mentoring process includes sharing knowledge, experience, networks and social capital.  In doing so, the mentor provides support relevant to the professional development of the mentee.  As opposed to discrete outcomes in the coaching environment, mentoring aims to provide holistic development, imbuing wisdom so that the mentee is not dependent on the mentor to achieve success, but rather is elevated to appropriately apply abstract solutions to specific challenges.  Over the course of time, the mentee develops a higher level of intuition.  They become equipped to solve complex issues, but are unable to accredit an exact point in time or piece of knowledge which had led them to gain the required wisdom to solve the challenge.

Alliance Partners

The MAP Institute works closely with our partners in supporting leaders navigate their path on their professional business journey. MAP has engaged with a number of organisations to provide mentoring to their network of clients. We have also appreciated their support when promoting and supporting MAP to their community, hosting our events and referring their clients to us.
