What is a Business Mentor?
A mentor, in simple words, is someone who offers their knowledge, expertise and advice to those with less experience. By leveraging their experience and skills, mentors guide mentees in the right direction.
A mentor helps mentees consider opportunities for business growth, gain confidence and improve interpersonal skills. The support is based on the mentor’s own experiences and learning's, which makes them more reliable figures in the eyes of the mentees.
- Mentoring is a long-term process based on mutual trust and respect.
- The topmost priority of a business mentor is to help develop skills that are not just relevant for the mentees in their present job, but also for the future.
With the right support, small businesses can become more productive, profitable and competitive.
