What is Mentoring?

Mentoring is a longer term relationship between a mentee and a mentor.  Within an organisation the mentor is usually older and more senior than the mentee and provides support and guidance.  An external mentor may be provided by the organisation or is hired on a personal basis, by the mentee to provide a listening ear, an accountability partner and general support and guidance.

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
