Small Business Mentoring Services – Yes we can help!
Mentors are trusted business guides who share their in-depth experience to help you develope your business. Mentoring is about listening to you, helping you plan and being a motivator. Mentoring works surprisingly well because the client takes an active part throughout the process rather than just being handed a file of someone else’s recommendations at the end. Being told what to do with your business isn’t a happy outcome particularly if you haven’t been involved in the thought process.
Having a Mentor to listen to your hopes and problems helps lessen the burden and can provide a sounding board for future development. Your Mentor is skilled at looking at issues from a range of perspectives, providing practical insight and suggesting alternative view points.
It can be hard to get motivated when you lact a clean plan, or need skills you don’t have, or are overwhelmed by the tasks that lie ahead. This is when a Mentor can help. As they are not involved directly with your business they are able to cut through the day to day problems and help you look at the wider picture and work towards achieving set goals.
