My expectations for a successful mentoring relationship

To enjoy and curate the best relationship It is important that as a mentor, I am able to deliver constructive feedback and that the mentee actively listens so they can learn at the highest capacity. I will provide the best advice to support and strengthen your entrepreneurial journey according to your business remit.

A real important fact: Open and honest communication is key to strengthening mentor/mentee relationship so both sides get the most out of the relationship.

A Breakdown of my Essential keys to a Successful Mentor/Mentee Relationship

  1. Keep communications open Mentor: Help your mentee set realistic expectations. Also, if you know you will be unavailable because of business or personal travel, let them know. Mentee: Be upfront. Let your mentor know what your goals are and what you hope to take away from the program.
  2. Offer support Mentor: Encourage communication and participation. Help create a solid plan of action. Mentee: Remember that your mentor is there for you, but is only a guide.
  3. Define expectations Mentor: Help set up a system to measure achievement. Mentee:  Review your goals. Make sure your mentor knows what to expect from you.
  4. Maintain contact Mentor: Respond to your e-mails. Answer questions and provide advice, resources and guidance when appropriate. Mentee: Be polite and courteous. Keep up with your e-mails and ask questions.
  5. Be honest Mentor: Be truthful in your evaluations, but also be tactful. Mentee: Let your mentor know if you don’t understand something or have a differing opinion.
  6. Actively participate Mentor: Engage in your own learning while you are mentoring, collaborate on projects, ask questions and experiment. Mentee: Listen. Ask if you can observe your mentor’s practice if he/she is local.
  7. Be innovative and creative Mentor: Share your ideas, give advice and be a resource for new ideas. Mentee: Offer ideas on what activities and exercises you can do together.
  8. Get to know each other Mentor and Mentee: Remember that people come from diverse backgrounds and experiences. Get to know each other on an individual basis.
  9. Be reliable and consistent Mentor and Mentee: The more consistent you are, the more you will be trusted.
  10. Stay positive Mentor: Recognize the work the mentee has done and the progress made. Mentee: Remember that your mentor is offering feedback and not criticizing.   I look forward to connecting xo

How entrepreneurs can prepare before we start

As an entrepreneur my first recommendation is to always be prepared for your mentoring sessions.

Be punctual, well organized, and ready to give a brief update on recent progress and developments and to propose an agenda for the conversation today. You might even email the topics to the mentor ahead of time, if you think the mentor would appreciate it.

I recommend mentees put together a google folder with all your business’s key materials, relevant to their mentoring relationship. For example, let’s say you are getting sales mentoring from a sales profession over 3 months. In this case it would be useful if you could put together a folder and include some of the following: your past and existing clients, your venture’s financial information, sales targets, marketing materials and so on. The more information your mentor has before the mentoring, the more effective your sessions will be as you don’t have to explain everything to them from the start.

In an Entrepreneur/Mentor connection, the more you put into the relationship the more you get out of it. Being honest about your ambitions and circumstances is important so that your mentor is aware of where you want to get to but also contextual factors which may affect your decision making. 

I recommend blocking out a few hours in your calendar straight after your mentoring session to reflect on your mentoring session, type up the notes and start actioning what you spoke about in your meeting with your mentor. This is because after your mentoring session, you are likely going to be feeling pumped and motivated and so it makes sense to capitalise on this and do the work then and there.

My top tips on how an Entrepreneur should prepare for a Good Mentor/Mentee Relationship 1. Keep an Active Line of Communication. 2. Maintain a Schedule. 3. Share Your Personal Goals. 4. Prepare and Review Before Meetings. 5. Maintain Mutual Respect. 6. Be Flexible in Your Thinking. 7. Serve as a Role Model. 8. Make Time for Constructive Feedback.
