Online Executive & CEO Mentoring For Women

Find Your CEO Mentor

From performance targets and financial management to sales and marketing, CEOs shoulder the ultimate responsibility for their organisation’s success in every aspect. In addition to being the head decision-maker, they must also lead, attract, motivate and organise the key people in their organisation.

However, as female CEO, we often face more significant challenges and obstacles than our male counterparts. While leaders require great skill and experience to be effective, they also need to continuously learn and grow to stay ahead of the curve

This is where CEO mentoring from Ruffle Mentoring comes in! Our leading female mentors have been where you are and can provide you with the guidance, support and advice you need to help you overcome challenges, make better decisions and bridge the gender gap of executive success!

Working with you to explore your potential is so exciting for me and I am thrilled to help you open up to what your life can really be like!

I help you acknowledge your inner strengths and skills and to understand that you already know what you want – because these things often become hidden underneath the daily grind of years of family, work/career, and other commitments.

That’s why I am supporting women, like you, to break out of the restrictions surrounding you; to re-connect with your own true values; to stop putting limits on your happiness, and help you get rid of the fear of living life on your terms.

The best role model you can be for others, and the best life you can live is by being your true self.

Having explored career paths in public and private healthcare, corporate industry, and coaching and mentoring, I have lived and worked across roles based in London, Amsterdam, Melbourne, and Sydney.

I understand the challenges and roadblocks associated with change and professional development having spent time dedicating myself to finding my own purpose and achieving ultimate success.

I help women, including teens and young women, to navigate intense periods of overwhelm and pressure and explore who they are and what they should be in this world – guiding them to develop and build successful careers that light them up and set them on a path to achieve their life goals.

I empower you, as a woman, to go for what you want, to live and flourish unapologetically, and find the purpose and ultimate success you deserve.

We often think the first step to being financially independent is to stop spending money, make more money, or generally find more money.

This is simply not the case!

It is never just about the money…

I am on a mission to support you to claim your financial independence, activate your abundance, free yourself from limiting beliefs and truly step into your birthright of feeling empowered and in control!

My clients find that once they take a deep dive into their personal finances and shine a light on their relationship with money…

Money no longer becomes a problem!

As a successful business owner and single mother raising my two children (who I am happy to report are still alive!) I overcame my own unhealthy relationship with money (in fact this was a major contributing factor in ending my marriage!)

Despite my financial qualifications and skills, my business almost failed in the early days due to my imposter syndrome and low self worth AKA money!

This is why I’m so driven to help you now.

The content and services we offer is shared in good faith to inspire you to make change and is general informational and for educational purposes only. Where we talk about improving your financial circumstances, it does not take into account your specific circumstances and we recommend you seek professional advice before making any decisions.

“I did not choose my trajectory, it chose me. I was a young first-time Mom when I had a stillbirth. This was a turning point in my life. Not only did I lose my baby, I lost my dreams, my identity, my confidence. I was at the precipice of going down the rabbit hole of despair when I realised that it would not rewind the past. What I learned is that we suffer more in our imagination than we do in reality.

It showed me how our happiness really does depend on the quality of our thoughts.

I learned that we cannot change anything outside of ourselves yet we can change the way we choose to respond to them. It taught me that none of us get out of life unscathed and that resilience is a learned skill.

It taught me to live wholeheartedly. You can too.”

Rated 5 out of 5

Michelle Springett is an inspiring, dynamic woman who has learned that colour is life!  Michelle’s ‘can do’ attitude has allowed her to follow her passion of helping others and now achieves this through Expressive Art Therapy.  After 30 years of not painting, Michelle picked up a paintbrush and instantly knew that art was great therapy for soul connection.

Michelle has pivoted many times herself – divorce, graphic designer, mother, funeral director, and now Expressive Art Therapist – which she believe is a wonderful combination of all her life’s experiences, rolled into one tool that can benefit you!

“My life’s experiences have been wide and varied and the learnings have been deep and downright uncomfortable! Writing a book about my cheating (first) husband gave me huge insight into relationships.

Since then, I’ve re-invented myself (a few times) over the decades – Admin Extraordinaire (organisational skills), Graphic Designer (creative), Funeral Director (empathy and understanding), and now Expressive Art Therapist – which I believe takes a piece of all my life’s experiences into one tool that can benefit so many!

So I definitely know about pivoting and starting over.

I know we are all great women doing the best that we can and I’m looking forward to meeting you and helping you on your journey in life!”

“How many times do you wish someone could come into your business and “sort out your staff?”

OR wish you could just talk to someone who knew and understood your situation first hand – and could give you advice on how best to deal with your team?

Leadership is massive, right? And dealing with our team and getting them in the right flow is the most difficult thing for many business owners – me included years ago!

As a salon owner, I understand how we creatives are a special breed – in a good way!  But I want to help you firstly; not let the crap get to you, and secondly;  get positive results in your decision-making and your team.

I am confident and insightful and I know how to help you take control of difficult situations and people. My own creative team has been with me for 6 years (and counting) which as you know is a long time in a creative industry.

People are often not bad at all, and I approach each mentoring session with genuine care, respect and without judgement. So if you’re a small – medium business, I can help you. I know what you go through!

Book a Half-Hour of Power call with me – I’ll help you get your situation sorted and your business running smoothly again – you’ll be so glad you did!

“If I’ve learned nothing else, it’s that life will bring us what we need, not what we want! And I’m here to help you clear your clutter and help you organise your office and your day, so you can think clearly and find things easily. It reduces the overwhelm!

Like all of us I’ve had challenges, yet I wouldn’t change any of it. It’s got me to where I am today and I have used these as opportunities to grow and find more of me. How cool is that? 

A health crisis (a couple of dances with cancer), relationship heartbreak… I have learned not to make decisions from fear and to always, always face it head-on from my heart, not my mind.

I am passionate about inner freedom – gaining awareness about beliefs, behaviours, and triggers that keep us trapped and hinder us from finding our best self.

So, I’m all about helping you to clear your internal and external clutter by getting you super-organised – easily!”

Rated 5 out of 5

Voted in the Top 50 Keynote Speakers 2022, Amanda Gore is up there with the likes of Brené Brown, Mel Robbins, and Lisa Nichols – to name a few.  But this world-renowned hall-of-fame speaker explains that getting down to business isn’t all about targets, goals, marketing, and optimising click-throughs.

The heart and profit centre of every business is about how people think, and consequently, feel about themselves; and how they make others feel. I help you find and change the limiting stories you are telling yourself and that in turn transforms your life and business – massively! We are not our stories, but our stories run our lives! Including how we present ourselves in all situations.”

Amanda knows that from personal (and challenging) experiences! Our stories determine how we feel – about personal or business relationships and inform every part of our decision to invest with a company or individual. Amanda’s experienced mentoring offers an abundance of use-it-now tools to create deep, lasting changes in relationships at every level – with yourself, family, customers, colleagues, staff, or your audience.

Amanda leaves you feeling more confident, good about yourself, and believing in yourself most importantly – which means you will be more energised, enthusiastic, and re-engaged!

How CEO Mentoring Can Help

Female CEOs Need Mentors Too

The path to C-Level leadership is not an easy one, and it’s one that is often fraught with challenges and obstacles. This is especially true for female CEOs, who often have to contend with gender bias and discrimination in the workplace.

It is well known that mentoring is a key factor in career success, yet research shows that female CEOs are far less likely to have mentors than their male counterparts. This means continued self-improvement and skill-building is imperative for women to succeed as a CEO.

While leadership requires great skill and experience to be effective, it also needs to continuously learn and grow to stay ahead of the curve – this is where a mentor can help! A mentor can provide you with the guidance, support and advice you need to overcome challenges, make better decisions and achieve success in your role as CEO.

Obtain New Perspectives

One of the main benefits of an executive mentor from Ruffle is that you gain access to a wealth of knowledge and experience. Each mentor has a wealth of experience in business, leadership and management.

Using their years of extensive experience they can provide you with invaluable insights into the challenges you are facing as a CEO. As they have “been there” and “done that” they are able to provide a different perspective on a variety of topics allowing you to make better, more informed decisions. 

This is invaluable for female CEOs, executives and leaders, who often have to contend with unconscious gender bias and lack of diversity in the workplace

Someone To Discuss Ideas With

As a female CEO, it can often be difficult to find someone to confide in or talk to about the challenges you are facing without judgement or criticism.

This is where having an executive mentor can be invaluable. Your mentor is there to listen to your thoughts and ideas, and to provide you with honest feedback.

This is a space where you can openly discuss your challenges, goals and aspirations without fear of judgement or criticism.

This also helps in identifying and addressing weaknesses, which can serve as a springboard for further self-improvement.

Receive Personalised Feedback

A mentor relationship should be built on trust, which is why our mentors take the time to get to know you, your goals and your business.

This allows them to provide you with personalised feedback that is tailored to your specific needs and challenges

This feedback is invaluable as it helps you to grow as a leader, discover new opportunities, and navigate the various challenges of being a female CEO while growing the organization and creating thriving cultures.

Spark New Thinking

A key benefit of having an executive mentor is that they challenge you to think differently. This is done by asking probing questions, raising different perspectives and offering alternative interpretations of events

This is an important aspect of the mentoring relationship, as it helps to stimulate new ways of thinking that can lead to better decision making, problem solving and creativity.

For female CEOs, this is especially important as they often have to contend with outdated systems, structures and processes that are not conducive to their success.
