Mentoring and Coaching Programmes:

The College of Law New Zealand also provides a number of programmes for mentoring and coaching purposes. The programmes are:

  • Resilience Coaching

  • Mentoring & Leadership Programme
    • This programme will enhance the delegates ability to develop growth strategies, build the right team, embrace change, and drive company performance.
  • Future Leaders Programme
    • Run over a period of nine months with a team of executive leadership coaches, this programme will provide you with the reassurance required to promote those best suited for the challenges of leadership.


I thought the seminar was really, really well presented. Thoroughly enjoyed it. I liked the small group and the exchange of ideas.

For your first session, once you have identified a subject which meets your needs, we will set up a pre-meeting with the presenter to discuss the expected outcomes of the session either face-to-face or via teleconference depending on location.

We then organise a time to run the programme which suits your timetable.



Delivery of the sessions can be online via video conferencing or on-site at your premises or hosted at the Colleges private teaching facilities in Auckland or Wellington. If you would like to discuss any of the sessions further please contact:
