We all need mentors: it’s a question of good balance, better performance and…happiness !
Mentoring is sharing experience for a better performance and a better being.
Mentoring is a one to one interaction, based on trust and understanding.
I provide personal advice to younger managers and entrepreneurs on how to approach business problems and life at work. My preferred format is one two-hour kick off meeting followed by 10 to 12 one-hour sessions (mix of on line and off line meetings). I also mentor small teams of 2-3 co-workers.
Ask for a trial session free 🙂
Thuong, 35, chief strategic officer of a major construction building group:
“When I was put in charge of this new job, I didn’t know where to start. Should I go over this merger and acquisition proposal immediately or write a strategic plan before ? Should I hire consultants or have my own staff do the job ? I had so much in mind that I couldn’t sleep. Happily, I could book a few hours talking and working with Prof Baeyens, my ex-prof of strategy. He became my mentor. I could speak, he would listen. I got advice, I found the way to solve the problems in a structured way.”
