Empowering Women with Impactful Coaching and Mentoring Program

AD Ports Groups Logo

ADPorts Group is delighted to be partnering with Cognomie, a global performance and wellbeing coaching and mentoring organization with Mental Fitness at the heart of everything they do.

ADPorts Group in partnership with Cognomie is offering the option to provide women across AD Ports with Group Coaching and individual Coaching & Mentoring sessions to support your personal and career development.

You can access the Group Coaching through picking one of the three development themes described below. When you’ve completed that theme, you may come back and sign up for the next one that is of interest to you. You can do one, two or all three of the programs. You can also opt for individual Coaching or Mentoring where, based on your development objectives, a qualified coach or mentor that is perfect for you will be matched. Accordingly, you shall explore and decide on what you will work on together.

To help you select which route is best suited to your needs, we’ve explained the elements of the Group Coaching option and distinguished the difference between Coaching and Mentoring below:


Group Coaching (three cohorts, three themes)

Each Group Coaching program has a distinct development theme and consists of three x 90 minute group coaching sessions, for groups of up to 15 women, facilitated by an expert coach. You can take part in one, two or all of the three development themes (one at a time).  Choose one of the programs and then, when you’ve completed all three modules within that program, you can come back and choose another theme.

Leading and Influencing Others

Leading self (90min)

Leading others (90min)

Influencing without authority (90min)

Individual Coaching or Mentoring

You also have the option to choose a coach or a mentor to support your development. If you are unsure about the difference between a coach and a mentor, here is an explanation of the difference:

A mentor will:

  • Provide specific experience and technical knowledge in the area or topic that you are seeking mentoring around
  • Assist with skill development, sharing of specific topic related information or train you around specific areas
  • Give you specific guidance on how you might approach something you encounter, directing you towards specific solutions

A coach will:

  • Enable you to think differently about yourself and how you approach your work and life in general, through the use of relevant coaching techniques
  • Support your personal development through utilizing expert coaching skills
  • Create a coaching space that allows you to reach your identified goals yourself through creative thinking, to direct you towards specific solutions and outcomes

In addition, by signing up to participate in the group coaching or 1:1 coaching or mentoring you will automatically be invited, quarterly, to attend a webinar to enhance your skills and build your capability with an expert in Women specific development.

Get the most out of your coaching or mentoring

Before you speak to one of Cognomie’s coaches or mentors, you’ll get more from the conversation if you think about some of the areas of focus that you could address from a coaching program.

Consider some of the following areas:

  • Areas of personal development (for example confidence, leadership, motivation, managing performance)
  • Team working skills (for example working across remote teams)
  • Leadership (for example confidence)
