As we start a New Year, we often start thinking about what we could be doing differently in 2017. We use the wisdom we’ve gained in the past year to move in a different direction or try breaking new ground. Personally I know need a good metaphorical shove from time to time, to push me out of my comfort zone!
Over the last twelve months, I’ve talked to and worked with business owners and managers, in companies large and small, who needed a gentle nudge, a different point of view, or simpler still, someone they could talk to, in total confidence, about a particular business challenge. You might call that business mentoring or consultancy, depending on the specifics but the principle is the same.
Benefits of a Business Mentor
You gain a different perspective, new ideas and expert insight
You are encouraged and supported to keep your business on track
You are listened to, in confidence
An experienced business mentor encourages and supports you to make the most of what you have; honing your skills to help you work through some of the practical challenges you face, whether starting or growing or exiting a business.
Mentoring can be a one-off session or part of a longer term and broader programme of development for you. Mentoring could be the one thing you need, right now, to develop your business skills and boost your confidence.
With a business mentor working in partnership with you, supporting you, challenging your thinking, suggesting new approaches and providing unbiased guidance, how could 2017 be different?
