Extract yourself from the day-to-day by helping your rising stars step-up. How often do you find yourself on calls thinking ‘I really shouldn’t need to be on this’? Much too often. But delegating is never quite as easy as it should be - especially if your next generation of leaders isn’t quite ready to step-up. In fact, according to research from CEO World, 62% of CEOs don’t believe that their mid-level leaders - the so-called ‘B-Suite’ - are good enough. And it gets worse - your B-Suite are struggling. Like, *really* struggling. 60% feel ‘used up’ every day, whilst 71% feel overworked, 69% are stressed and 54% feel unsupported. At the same time, only 50% of mid-level leaders feel confident to lead and 37% don’t want to stay in management. To be fair to the B-Suite, they’ve often been promoted sooner and with less training than previous generations. Not to mention feeling their way into hybrid working, with welcome but tricky societal change accelerating all around them. No wonder imposter syndrome is the issue that young leaders most often bring to Co:definery's coaching and mentoring. Your rising stars are exhausted, isolated and acutely aware of your lack of faith. And in this crazy talent market, you can’t afford for them to leave for pastures new.
So what can you do?Rather than endlessly getting dragged into the weeds - and doing your strategic thinking at the weekends - another option is to offer them a different kind of support. B-Suite Bootcamp is Co:definery’s group mentoring programme designed to help your future leaders and new managers feel more confident and capable in their roles. For six weeks, they become part of an inspiring group with a common cause – to explore and solve their shared challenges. Each week, the group co-creates a new step in participants’ personalised ‘Game Plan’ – from setting goals and changing mindsets, to building habits, overcoming hurdles and avoiding burnout.

- Six 90-minute remote workshops, tailored to their real-world priorities
