A New Approach to Leadership

Stra-le Management Lab and  Axel Glocal Business  present an innovative high-impact pathway for the development of Leadership skills: MentorCoaching.

A path where the divergent, discovery and exploration approach of Coaching merges and integrates with the convergent, concrete and direct approach of Executive Mentoring.

MentorCoaching is the 8-session intensive course designed for Top Managers and High Potential in which Leadership development becomes the common goal of these two synergistic and complementary approaches.

“The MentorCoaching course with Franco and Nicola was highly effective and impactful for my managerial development. Session after session I focused on concrete and functional goals for my growth as a manager and leader. Goals that have become, with their support, a clear and effective action plan.”

A Mentor, a Coach

Why Mentoring?

The mentoring component will focus on the development of skills in which there has been an area of enhancement. Mentoring interventions will focus on sharing “best practices” and lessons experienced and learned in the field, the approach will therefore not be theoretical but on the contrary will be a direct expression of the experience and professional career of Top Manager Franco Moscetti.

Why Coaching?

Coaching will be instrumental in helping managers become deeply aware of themselves, their role, strengths and empowerment. Specifically, the program will help coachees clarify their areas of empowerment, identify obstacles to growth and “road blocks,” and define an effective strategic plan for achieving their goals.


MentorCoaching is a program serving leadership development to improve individual and organizational performance.

Specifically, the objectives are:

Develop a greater awareness of oneself, one’s role, and one’s professional mission

Improve self-management and enhance self-efficacy

Expanding one’s organizational sphere of influence

Have greater job satisfaction

The route

A typical MentorCoaching course consists of 8 sessions of 1 hour each and can be introduced by an initial self-assessment phase. The course can be tailored to individual and team needs.

The main stages of the pathway are:

Awareness of areas of empowering one’s Leadership

Exploration of options and “geographies” for improving performance and own satisfaction

Identification of a concrete plan to enhance development areas

Creation of a Future commitment plan that facilitates the individual’s development even after the course is over

The Methodologies

MentorCoaching represents a novelty in industry pathways: our approach to Leadership is the result of the integration of three important methodologies. Coaching, Mentoring and Active Learning – while respecting and valuing their specific differences – come together making one great contribution to self-empowerment.


Coaching is an interactive process through which the coach supports the coachee for improved performance or to address a change. Coaching will be instrumental in helping managers become deeply aware of themselves, their role, strengths and empowerment.

Specifically, the program will help coachees to:

Clarifying one’s areas of empowerment

Identifying obstacles to growth and “road blocks”

Set challenging and effective goals

Exploring options and opportunities for improvement

Define an “action plan”

Assessing progress


The mentoring component will help participants cope with the change and challenges identified along the way. It is built on the needs of the role and aims to effectively answer specific questions of the mentee. Mentoring touches on the issues presented in the session through the tools and direct experience of the Mentor, who becomes a guide and support through sharing important lessons learned in the field.

“If the mentor has a coaching approach, there is more likely to be mutual and interactive learning. If the mentor does not have this approach, he may only share experiences and strategies that were helpful for him but will not necessarily be helpful for the mentee. Good mentors already have this approach, but coaching skills can help them be more effective.”
