“Mentors are people who, through their action and work, help others to achieve their potential”
(G. Shea, 1992).
I like simple definitions!
Mentoring is available in many ways and you may need a mentor at different stages of your life. Think about what would be the most useful next transition for you – whether in behaviour, knowledge, relationships or career. Then, give me a call and we can discuss what would work for you and where you might find a suitable mentor.
Choose someone who has the knowledge, experience and credibility to add value to you in your role. This could be by acting as a sounding board, a challenging friend or an advisor and guide.
“Behind every successful person, there is one elementary truth: somewhere, somehow, someone cared about their growth and development. This person was their mentor.”
Would executive mentoring help you to discuss your job, your people, your plans or your professional development with an experienced director? Do you need an executive mentor to work with? I am someone who has ‘been there, seen it and done it’ myself.
“Executive Mentoring is a process for the informal transmission of knowledge and support relevant to work, career or professional development. Mentoring entails informal communication, between a person (the mentor), who is perceived to have greater relevant knowledge, wisdom, or experience and a person who is perceived to have less (the mentee)”.
Bozeman, B. & Feeney, M. K. (Oct. 2007)
I could be the executive mentor you need. I offer a confidential executive mentoring relationship where I can be your ‘sounding-board’ to:
- review your business plans or challenges in changing the organisation;
- discuss the difficult decisions you need to make in your role or about your team;
- manage the organisation and perceptions of others around you and above you;
- help you successfully transition from a functional role to a Board or General Management job;
- help you to build your confidence and create a successful track-record at the highest level.
You know that investing in your own potential as a business leader will have a huge payback for your organisation further down the line.
The business case is clear – why don’t you take the next step?
Why don’t you call me to see how we could work together to maximise your chances of success?
