When signing up to our mentoring programme we ask for clarity, good communication and commitment; our process is as follows:
Establish goals and share lessons learned
It’s hard to achieve anything out of a mentoring relationship unless we have specific goals to focus on. Being honest about what it is you would like to accomplish is really important.
In some cases, our mentee might not know how to articulate what they want to focus on. It’s our role to ask the right questions, listen and offer the way forward.
We share our process and examples of previous activity, the ups and downs and the outcomes, what was learned and how we applied those lessons in the business or role of the individual. Our process sometimes means sharing some “tough love”, which means being willing to be vulnerable.
Please note that you will drive the relationship, you are investing in our time it is up to you to maximise the opportunity we put before you. It will be you, with guidance that will prepare the agenda for our sessions.
Each session we will revisit previous conversations and have you share updates, progress and how you applied the advice offered. This approach provides a chance to discuss any hinderence and how to address it going forward. This shows progress, which is always rewarding for both parties.
SPEND MORE TIME MAKING A DIFFERENCE AND LESS TIME WORRYING ABOUT IT.
