FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS


Why would I bring a mentor into my business?

Click here

Senior Executives’ roles have dramatically changed over recent years to become much more complex. They have to learn new skills to stay ahead of developments / the game. For many senior executives, particularly those in early stage companies and SMEs, this means becoming all things to all people and resulting in the company veering off track from the vision of the original business goals. Bringing in an experienced mentor will allow you to access and utilise their extensive knowledge and experience to develop new ways of working as well as improving general operations. This is where mentorship is most effective.

How much time can my company expect to get from a mentor?

Click here

This very much depends on the scope of the project / work required which will be agreed in an initial meeting. We set a dedicated tranche of time each month for the mentor to spend with you while we would also expect you to commit to preparing for each mentoring session. The complexities of the objectives will vary from business to business, but it should be agreed at the onset.
