Michael H. Shenkman, Ph.D., is founder and president of the Arch of Leadership, a leader mentoring company. Shenkman is a pioneer in this field. His leader mentoring program is one of the first fully developed mentoring programs being offered to businesses and organizations world wide. Shenkman has developed leader mentoring into a high level advancement practice. Rather than focus on leadership skills, mentoring helps aspiring executives to fully enter and commit to the life of creative leading in order to build organizational value, inspire success and enhance quality of life.

Dr. Shenkman developed the Arch of Leadership program based on extensive research and more than 20 years of consulting experience and acting as executive coach and mentor. He teaches in The Management Development Center of the University of New Mexico and holds a Ph.D. from Boston College and a BA from Dickinson College.

Dr. Shenkman also led The New Directions Institute and its Entrepreneurial Leadership Excelerator (ELE) Program. Dr. Shenkman's approach to mentoring pairs each participant with an individual mentor for one on one highly personal and directed conversations.   Offered in combination with group learning sessions and peer reviews, participants gain a unique opportunity for profound personal growth.  Most relationships with the mentors persist well beyond the boundaries of the program.
