Would you like to find a good mentor to help you get to the next stage, either in your business or in your life? In episode 149, I talked to Kwadwo, who found a great mentor. Getting mentoring has made the biggest impact on my business because it’s great to have a sounding board. It’s great to have a space where you can grow and express your, frustrations, but then also it’s great to have this accountability. And today I wanted to share with you different types of mentor relationships that you could engage with that will get you to that next level.
Questions To Ask To Choose the Best Mentor Relationship
Do you need that real one-on-one support where you’ve just got the undivided attention of that coach or mentor?
How often do you need support? Do you need group coaching once a month? Every other week? What’s available in between?
- How much do you want to invest?
Types of Mentor Relationships:
- Informal Mentor – this is typically an unpaid relationship where your chosen mentor is donating their time to you. This relationship would involve you hand-selecting the type of mentor you would like to have reaching out to them and proposing this mentor relationship. Not every person you might consider reaching out to would have the time or the availability to have this type of relationship, but certainly there are lots of people who would be happy to donate a little time to help someone. You would just have to reach out to them and see if they’re open to the idea.
- Formal Mentor: One-on-One Coaching – this could also be someone in the industry who has one-on-one coaching, like the industry you want to go into, or it could be in the form of a business coach who generally coaches, lots of different types of businesses in a similar niche.
- Formal Mentor: Mastermind or Group Coaching – what I would look for here in group coaching is what kind of support do you think you need? How often do you need it? Do you need group coaching once a month? Every other week? What’s available in between?
- Formal Mentor: Course Coaching – Do you need to learn something and then also get some deep understanding through some sort of either group coaching or one-on-one coaching that’s involved with the program? And that can be really helpful too, because if you’re motivated to, make progress, but you really just need the training and the learning, then that can be a great fit.
