What is mentoring?
Mentoring is quickly becoming one of the leading tools and strategies that successful people are using in order to enhance their lives further and allow them to lead extraordinary lives.   The mentoring relationship is a partnership – an equal relationship – allowing you room to move yet being accountable so that you can be the kind of person that you would like to be, to achieve the kind of life and work that you would like to have and to achieve the goals that you would like to meet.

What is My Responsibility?
=>  To clarify and encourage you to set the goals that you really want to achieve/exceed
=>  To lead and direct you to do more than you have probably done on your own
=>  To help you to focus better in order to produce results more quickly
=>  To provide you with the tools, support and structure to accomplish more

How I Mentor Clients
As your mentor, I will ask questions, encourage, advise, challenge, make requests and listen for your "essence" so that you are consistent with who you are in terms of your goals, your values and your vision.   My focus will be upon you and what you want and how you can best get it.    However, the mentoring relationship is designed by both of us and may be refined by each of us in the giving and receiving of feedback.   Although I am committed to the process, it still remains your personal responsibility to take action (or not take action) as you desire.

1. I Expect Your Best
The best results are achieved when you are ready to both do and be the best that you can be.   It is about stepping up to the challenge and giving it your best shot.   If there is a sense in which you may not be giving it your best, it is my job to bring that to you and your awareness so we can work out what you really want to do.

2. I Make Specific Requests
As the need arises, I will make direct requests such as, "Could you see yourself accomplishing X within the next two weeks"?    You could meet the request ("Yes, I can do that"), provide an alternative option ("I can't do X, but I can do Y") or perhaps you might decline altogether (which rarely happens). Whichever way you respond though, I will support your action.

3. I Give Advice
On occasion, if I have a real sense of a particular direction, and you are open to it, I will make specific suggestions on how to handle a problem or an issue or make the most of an opportunity.    If I'm not always certain about my suggestion, I will always certainly say so.   Regardless, you will need to use your own discretion and judgment.

4. I Am Open
If for example, I hear a hesitancy in your voice or notice an inconsistency, I will generally ask you about it.   Often, it is these particular moments that permit the opportunity to resolve something.   Irrespective, I will not confront you.   It is only my job to highlight the issue and allow you to do with it what you will.

5. I Set Homework
Typically, I ask you to work out perhaps two or three goals or actions to focus upon between our sessions together.    If I am pushing you too hard, then it is important for you to say so.  If you want to be pushed harder, it is also important for you to say so.

There will be 2 sessions in 2016, they will run from:

SESSION I

January - September    -   Seats still available...enroll now!

SESSION II

April - December   -   Enrollment for this session will commence January 1, 2016

Only 20 participants will be accepted per session...this is a hard cut off!    We want to ensure everyone gets quality one on one time without being crammed in a mentoring sardine can.  We recommend you register early if/when you make that decision to improve and enhance your goals and vision!
