Mentor me is our mentoring support service for business leaders. Running a business and leading others can be a lonely task, many people benefit from time out and the guidance of an experienced mentor. A mentor will encourage and support you to make the most of yourself and your business.
The greatest value is often in taking a step back and seeing your business through someone else’s eyes. From my own experience. I know how useful it can be to share and learn from the experience of somebody who has been there before you.
Thinking that a Business Mentor might help to refocus?
Finding an individual you trust and admire as a mentor is the first step. A good mentor/mentee relationship is often the result of well-suited personalities. However, you should expect a mentor to:
Listen in confidence to the issues that are troubling you in the business
Share their own experiences of failures and successes
Be a sounding board for your ideas
Provide constructive feedback
Help you to identify alternative courses of action
Encourage you to identify measurable business benefits from your chosen actions
Encourage you to think through consequences and risks associated with actions
