Here’s how you can become a professional mentor
The best thing about being a professional mentor is that it’s a mutually beneficial experience for both mentors and proteges. Mentoring can be flexible, it’s something you can do part time or full time from anywhere in the world.
The relationship between a mentor and protégé (mentee) needs to work for both parties. That’s why we work hard to make sure our mentors are on board for the right reasons and that potential protégés are equipped with an understanding of what they can expect from being mentored, the mentoring process and mentors themselves.
Here are some tips on things you should do in order to maximize your mentoring experience.
- Include a professional photo of yourself
- Include an honest and professionally written biography
- Decide what your schedule can handle (schedule time with your protégés and make them a priority, honor your promises and commitments to them)
- Decide who you’d like to help (the mentoring areas that you would like to focus on).
Our professional mentors come from a diverse range of backgrounds including:
- Professors and lecturers
- Health professionals
- Sports coaches and trainers
- Life coaches
- Retirees with diverse and specialized knowledge, skills and experience
- Many more niche fields and areas of expertise
Not all ‘experts’ with the knowledge to share wish to join the speaking circuit. The good news is that you don’t need to. You can still make a difference in the world by being a mentor.
