What Is Business Mentoring?
Business mentoring is a relationship between a business mentor and business owner, driven by the business owner who sets the goals and agenda, focusing on delivering real business and personal benefits and progress, learning and development and developing the business owner's capabilities. Business mentors are highly experienced and knowledgeable in business and can support business owners with all areas of their business and a wide range of business challenges.
Business mentoring gives the business owner a business mentor to bounce ideas off, to point them in the right direction, to help them focus on the most important issues, to be their confidential sounding board, to enable them to work 'on', not just 'in' their business, to support and motivate them in the stressful and challenging times and to help them to achieve your business goals and objectives.
The business mentor supports, motivates and inspires the business owner to work out their own solutions, develop insight and achieve more than they would on their own. This includes the business mentor listening, questioning, challenging, providing feedback, bringing a different perspective, being a sounding board, helping the business owner sort out the many and complex issues of running a business and sharing their business knowledge and experience with the business owner. The business mentor is non directive, non judgemental, positive, open minded, flexible, curious and maintains confidentiality.
There are many benefits of business mentoring and many ways in which a business mentor can help you and your business. Please read the following for more information:
