What is Mentoring?

Are you a procrastinator?  Do you wonder why you never get things done?

Do you wonder what is stopping you from being successful?

Mentoring is a business relationship where the mentor provides support and an opportunity to talk through issues on a confidential basis.   Some organisations offer an internal mentoring or 'buddying' system.  However many people seek an external, confidential mentor as they progress through their career.

Why might you hire a Mentor?

You may be struggling to succeed at :

  • Starting your own business
  • Developing your business to meet new market trends
  • Returning to work after bereavement or serious illness
  • Enjoying life

How I can help

  • A confidential and listening ear
  • A sounding wall to talk through ideas
  • Emotional support
  • Identifying and clarifying issues
  • Being an accountability partner

If you would like to find out more about mentorship I would love to have a chat.       44+ 7769 865487
