ATLANTA, GA (PRWEB) February 11, 2015
For the past two decades, continuous growth and high-quality delivery of mentoring programs to industry-leading organizations have been the cornerstone of Pathbuilders’ success. This month marks the 20th anniversary for the professional mentoring and leadership development company that was founded with a unique focus on building gender-diverse leadership teams by developing the potential of high-performing women in Fortune 500 organizations.
What started with a single mentoring class for mid-career women has expanded to include a full complement of cross-company mentoring programs (InsigniaSM, Percepta®, Achieva® and Inspiria®) that address the unique needs across the four key developmental stages of a woman’s career. These stages have been identified and shaped through Pathbuilders’ unparalleled 20-year history of one-on-one interviews with thousands of women across the career spectrum.
Just over five years ago, Pathbuilders offerings expanded to include customized programming inside organizations to positively strengthen the leadership pipeline. The team now develops and delivers high-impact internal mentoring programs, workshops and webinars for management and executive development, high-potential developmental experiences, support for women’s initiatives, and talent management/succession planning processes. Pathbuilders partners with clients to maximize organizational impact through developing the skills, styles and leadership potential of high-performing women and men across the globe.
“The attention and focus placed on professional mentoring in the workplace over the past 20 years has yielded powerful results,” said Helene Lollis, president of Pathbuilders. “Organizations that implement internal mentoring programs or support their high-potential employees’ participation in a cross-company program, like the ones we offer, strengthen their leadership pipelines as well as increase retention and employee engagement. A strong talent development strategy leverages mentoring as a means to not only accelerate individuals’ career growth, but also to build leadership bench strength that directly contributes to the bottom-line success of the organization.”
Pathbuilders focuses on building long-term, high-impact relationships with clients. Long-time mentor and client Jill Ratliff, SVP of HR at Assurant Specialty Property notes that, “designing and facilitating custom programs that are unique, exceptionally well-executed and highly-valued by clients is Pathbuilders’ core competence.”
Since 1995, Pathbuilders has had the pleasure of working with Fortune-ranked organizations, universities, government agencies and high-growth companies to develop the leadership potential of high-performing, high-potential women and men through shared insights, new perspectives and professional connections. Current and past client partners include Verizon Wireless, InterContinental Hotels Group, Invesco, Infor, LeasePlan USA, Kimberly-Clark, Cisco Systems, KPMG, Spelman College and the U.S. Army, among many others.
