Adding Knowledge and Experience to Your Business
Mentoring is about adding a new source of advice and guidance to your business. You can only do so much – sometimes you need extra expertise plus the wider perspective that only an experienced outsider can give.
Starting with a review of your objectives and desired outcomes, we work through a structured process that identifies gaps and leads to a step-by-step action plan. With your mentor, you will find solutions and discover new ideas that are just right for your business.
Overcome Obstacles More Easily
What’s stopping your business reaching its goals? Talk with your mentor about the obstacles you face, and explore possible solutions together. Whether you need advice on a day-to-day dilemma or a major structural issue, you will find your mentor a source of practical and relevant suggestions.
Try New Approaches with Confidence
Hearing about different ways to do things is all very well – but how do you know the ideas will work? Few business challenges are unique, but every business is different. Because we know what has worked for other businesses and what hasn’t, we can suggest the ideas that are most likely to prove successful for you. Whilst it’s true that you learn from your own mistakes, it’s quicker and cheaper to learn from other people’s.
Hands-on Learning with a Guide
Like mountain guiding, business mentoring focuses on enhancing your own ability to reach your goals. If we identify, for example, that you need to improve your financial planning systems, we will explain how to put together a budget, sit with you to set up the spreadsheet, and make sure you know how to use it.
Your Business, Your Decisions
Your mentor isn’t there to tell you what to do, but to provide support, knowledge and ideas to help you decide on the best way forward. You can be confident that our approach will be tailored to your business, because we take the time and trouble to ask questions, and to understand what you do and what you want to achieve.
Our mentoring programme can be for individuals or for a group, and is often one aspect of a wider business improvement programme.
