For mentoring to work, both partners have to share a focus or focus areas.
Business Mentoring Matters
Almost everyone thinks that they can use a mentor at some point in their career. Although this may be true, are you ready to be mentored? Being a mentoree means putting in the commitment necessary toward establishing and maintaining a mentoring relationship and also having some sense of focus in terms of what areas you want to develop both professionally and personally.
Are you looking for an online mentoring course either for yourself or for your employees? Are looking to supplement your current mentoring program?
What if this happened to you?
You’ve been in a stagnant career for some time. You’re at the top of your game but are feeling frustrated and unfulfilled in your work. You have thought about starting your own business in a different field but aren’t sure if you can take the risks involved. You’ve gone to classes on how to start your own business and you’ve done some preliminary work but you can’t seem to move any further ahead. You know that this new venture is something you would really like to try but you are reluctant to give up the security of a good salary, important benefits and the status of a good job. So you continue to vacillate in taking action, hoping that at some point something will happen to get you to move decisively toward that new venture. You don’t know what it will take but hope that whatever it is comes along soon.

We're sharing some of the evergreen content from our archives and wanted to share this great piece about the relationship between baseball and mentoring.
Though a great deal has been written about mentoring, there is little statistical data supporting its value. Much of the published information available is based on theory alone. Because mentoring is about human relationships, it is more difficult to quantify scientifically.
Using interviews and questionnaires, Management Mentors has evaluated mentoring programs implemented by client companies. The results consistently demonstrate that well-designed programs lead to the acquisition of knowledge and expertise within a trusting and supportive mentoring relationship.
