“Having a mentor like you is like getting an upgrade into
first class travel!”

“It has only been four days but the acceleration of "things" has been quite astonishing!”
Mentor & Coach
When someone asks if you'll be their mentor, it is a deeply considered acceptance. The time commitment, the relationship focus and if my own knowledge and experience is suited to what my mentee is hoping to develop within themselves.
It's been a pleasure to have developed others beyond what they thought was possible.Their growth is the passion I experience when sharing my knowledge and skills. After a number of years of being a mentor 'on the quiet', I've taken the leap of extending my service portfolio as a Mentor on a more formal basis. I am available on a longer term basis to help organisations as part of their own mentor program or direct with individuals to develop and transcend professionally.
You'll find my approachable and upfront style easy to be with yet I will challenge you, help you find the potholes and/or grand canyons in your journey and encourage you to take an active part in this relationship. Your life, your responsibility.
Let the journey begin by connecting with me and discovering if this is the right Mentor relationship for you.
Coaching is not about being better than the team or individual in a particular skill but about being able to bring out the best in their performance through a variety of techniques that inspire learning and practice to achieve quality results and eventual mastery. Unlike the mentor service, being the coach for your team or an individual is for a set period focussed on defined areas of proficiency to be improved, enhanced or gained.
Progress is monitored, involves regular feedback from both 'player and coach' and measured in terms of the 'defined success' agreed between us. If you're not meeting expectations, need to acquire a new skill or master a current one, improve your performance or attempt something out of your comfort zone then let's connect.
