MILWAUKEE, April 19, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Patina Solutions, the leading professional services firm providing executive on-demand talent, has introduced CAMEO, a new model for delivering targeted, one-on-one external coaching and mentoring solutions. Built on a robust technology-based platform, CAMEO allows mid- and high-level employees to select ideal external coaches or mentors based on job function, skills, industry, competencies, specific professional experiences and even personality. What sets CAMEO apart from traditional corporate programs is that CAMEO uses algorithms to match participants' style preferences. Even more compelling is that CAMEO builds connections from completely different industries or parts of the country if that is part of the best solution.
While internal coaches and mentors can help mentees and coachees navigate company waters and politics, as well as build relationships inside the organization, external mentors may be more likely to challenge mentees and coachees, expose them to multiple external perspectives or to be a confidential sounding board. Sometimes, internal mentors and coaches are busy executives available for occasional conversations but are still very engrossed in their own work and responsibilities. Being a mentor or coach might be lower on their priority list. External mentors and coaches can provide consistent, dedicated, and objective guidance. There is no bias of an insider, or the fear about discussing internal politics.
"Mentoring and coaching is a natural extension of Patina's core offerings using highly experienced executives, and the creation of CAMEO became a calling I couldn't ignore," said Patina President and CEO, Mike Harris. "Corporate response to CAMEO has surprised even me. It's been quite rewarding to see the positive results and impact CAMEO pairings have generated for our clients."
CAMEO connects mentees and coachees seeking advice and new skills access to thousands of on-demand, top-tier executives nationwide via an easy-to-use, fast, flexible and cost effective solution available in-person or virtually. From seeking an external mentor for a single employee to meeting the needs of several dozen employees, CAMEO offers a full-service solution.
