Keys for Success:  Choose Your Focus


Leadership Mentoring involves the mentor and mentee meeting at least monthly for a nine months period of time.  Two leadership development goals are established during the initial meeting.  Ideally, the mentor meets with the mentee and their manager to engage them in the goal setting and feedback processes.  In subsequent sessions, the mentor shares knowledge, and discusses skill development with their mentee.  Additionally, effective work behaviors and values may be explored.  The mentee presents current challenges in both their work and broader life in order to brainstorm solutions.  Career advancement is also discussed in this mentoring relationship.


Entrepreneurial Mentoring involves pairing a successful entrepreneur with an emerging entrepreneur.  The mentor shares 'best practices' on how best to grow one's business.  In addition to a year of mentoring sessions, the entrepreneur will have access to entrepreneurial success materials and groups.  The mentor will also assist their entrepreneurial mentee with other community resources.
