University of Pavia Hosts the Launch of the Tällberg Leaders Mentoring Leaders Program
24 Leaders Convene at Palazzo Vistarino
The Tällberg Foundation, a global organization domiciled in Sweden, launched its new mentoring program during 25-28 January, at the University of Pavia, Italy. Tällberg Leaders Mentoring Leaders matches emerging leaders from a wide range of countries and disciplines with equally diverse established leaders in a year-long work program that aims to accelerate their leadership journeys.
“All of the enormous challenges that confront our societies can at least be managed if we have more leaders who are prepared to think differently about their leadership,” said Mike Niconchuk who leads the Tällberg Foundation program. “Our hope is to leverage mentors’ experiences and learnings—successes as well as failures—so that emerging leaders can seize their opportunities as soon as possible.”
The mentees, coming from 11 countries, were nominated through an online open process, vetted by the Tällberg Foundation’s research team and ultimately selected by a global jury. Mentors are all volunteers from Tällberg’s global network.

“These leaders are dynamic forces for good, in a world that is plagued by too much that is not good,” said Alan Stoga, Chairman of the Tällberg Foundation. “I am delighted that the Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF) has joined us in an initiative that has enormous potential to grow in the coming years.
