My expectations for a successful mentoring relationship
Mentoring is a two-way street - one where both the mentor and mentee grow and learn from each other. In my opinion, to achieve a successful mentoring relationships, the mentee should be open-minded, the mentor should be flexible and there should be an alignment on the goals of the relationship.
Before we begin working together we will set out ground rules and expectation for a relationship that shows mutual respect and dedication. Same level of commitment and same level of energy from both parties.
How entrepreneurs can prepare before we start
You should what you want to get out of the relationship. Clarity of mind or at least a willingness to be guided in the right direction is important. Strip yourself of all egoistic tendencies. Have an end goal in mind, my job is to help you chart a roadmap to get there. Count all your chickens - that is. you should take stock of all resources you have available to you.
