Mentoring On-Demand

How does On-Demand work?

In our first session, we will get to know each other a little to see if we “click”.  I think that it is very important to build a relationship based on mutual trust and respect.

After that, the On-Demand part comes in. Options are phone calls, FaceTime / webinar-type sessions or face-to-face meetings.  At least once a month we would have a call to keep each other updated.

The topics can be technical, style, political (company), dry run a presentation or use me as a sounding board.

I can help with the following topics:

  • Management of people
  • Industrial IoT or IoT in general
  • Mergers & Acquisitions
  • Process re-engineering and business system alignment
  • Product Management
  • Service Supply Chain

Why sponsored mentoring?

Here is a fantastic way to offer a benefit to your employees above and beyond compensation.  Use On-Demand mentoring if you do not have the in-house expertise or the time to really help your employees grow in their subject matter expertise and management capabilities. I can provide a sounding board for partial ideas and help to flesh them out.

This kind of mentoring service helps your employees become more confident and  knowledgeable which benefits your company.   A WIN-WIN situation.

Invest in the employees you expect to help grow your company’s revenue and profit.

Why personal mentoring?

Help yourself build confidence and expertise to further your career. Take fate into your own hands.  Create your own WIN. Do not wait for your employer to mentor you. Now find the mentor you need and trust.

What is mentorship?

From Wikipedia:

Mentorship is a relationship in which a more experienced or more knowledgeable person helps to guide a less experienced or less knowledgeable person. The mentor may be older or younger than the person being mentored, but she or he must have a certain area of expertise. It is a learning and development partnership between someone with vast experience and someone who wants to learn. Mentorship experience and relationship structure affect the “amount of psychosocial support, career guidance, role modeling, and communication that occurs in the mentoring relationships in which the protégé and mentors engaged.”

“Mentoring” is a process that always involves communication and is relationship-based, but its precise definition is elusive, with more than 50 definitions in use. One definition of the many that have been proposed, is

Mentoring is a process for the informal transmission of knowledge, social capital, and the psychosocial support perceived by the recipient as relevant to work, career, or professional development; mentoring entails informal communication, usually face-to-face and during a sustained period, between a person who is perceived to have greater relevant knowledge, wisdom, or experience (the mentor) and a person who is perceived to have less (the protégé)”.

Mentoring in Europe has existed since at least Ancient Greek times. Since the 1970s it has spread in the United States mainly in training contexts, with important historical links to the movement advancing workplace equity for women and minorities, and it has been described as “an innovation in American management”.
