 What is Mentoring?

What is Mentoring?

‘Mentoring begins when a person strategically affects the professional life of someone else by fostering insight, identifying needed knowledge and expanding the other person’s horizons’. Larry Ambrose, Mentor’s Companion

The LevelUp Team will support mentees as much possible, provide mentors as a resource and act as a liaison if there is a communication breakdown.

Mentees are expected to take an active role in their own development by identifying and sharing their needs, being receptive to feedback, setting realistic goals with their mentor, contributing ideas, asking questions ,communicating effectively and being respectful.

Mentors roles will differ depending on the mentee. Mentors are expected to help entrepreneurs navigate their way from emerging entrepreneur to successful business owner by revealing “unwritten rules” of success, sharing lessons learned, encouraging their mentees to achieve an ambitious goal, focusing on what they are doing successfully and providing constructive feedback to promote professional growth, helping their mentees develop their professional interests and set realistic goals. Mentors are expected to be role models, always projecting high standards of professionalism and a positive attitude.
