What to Expect

Educational institutions do not prepare us for the future. Surviving the IR4.0 (Fourth Industrial Revolution) as a Business Owner, Start-Up, CEO or Managing Director demands self-understanding and self-responsibility.

TBi offers a mentorship programme available exclusively to business leaders. This interpersonal relationship can be described as a more experienced individual providing guidance to the Mentee by drawing from own experience and offering advice. Successful business leaders have their thinking frequently challenged for the good of the business and their legacy. 

This doesn’t imply that the Mentor has all the answers but rather having somebody close that one can trust and together arrive at the best solutions to business challenges. 

This unique offering is lead by the CEO and Co-Founder of TBi, Dr. Chris Heunis. He provides context-specific counsel drawn from National and International experience as an Executive Team Facilitator and Mentor. TBi’s Mentorship Programme separates itself from standard ‘coaching’ sessions and is uniquely adapted to the evolving relationship between Mentor and Mentee.

Making the Match

  • The awkwardness of the first session fades away once the thinking style (HBDITM) of the Mentee has been successfully debriefed
  • Sessions are “infrequent” with no specified curriculum or predetermined number of sessions
  • A thematic approach is used - sessions are tailored based on specific problems, behavior-related challenges and complex relationships
  • Think of this as a practical MBA. The Mentee may be challenged with a very unique problem that requires relevant experience or a broad perspective. This is where the Mentee stands to benefit from 25 years of networking and academic research.
  • Where required, short sessions in private are arranged with experienced and accomplished specialists in their field to optimize growth and learning.


We have surveyed 45 CEO’s who have formal mentoring arrangements, and 71% said they were certain that company performance had improved as a result. Strong majorities reported that they were making better decisions (69%) and 78% reported increased capability fulfilling stakeholder expectations.
