Performance Professional Mentoring
"True learning is about true understanding. We know why, so we can adapt. We know how so we practice. And we also know why not, so we can adapt something to our minds, our bodies and our businesses." - Thomas Plummer
What you get
$300 for two hours/month, to be spent in combinations of online (skype) or personal mentoring.
Education is a word derived from the latin word educare.
Educare means, "to educe, to bring out". Having a mentor should be about bringing out in you why you do what you do, so you can find the right "what" you do, to lead you to upskill in the "how". It's only in the latter of those three that education shifts from bringing out to putting in. The last part, putting in, is instruction - a necessary process of learning for those with a skill to ply. Without a why, a how is but hit and miss.
The right mentor takes hold of person who wants to know how, educes in them more of the why and provides the how when it fits.
The right mentee is not someone who wants their mentor to just tell them what to do each day.
So, if you're asking "Will you teach me?", I'll reply, "Yes, but will you learn?"
This can not be a master mind group where we leave all warm and fuzzy, but still never learned a damn thing that would help us, our clients or our businesses.
Learning is about opening your mind to concepts to direct you when and how to up-skill to the application of steps - that's instruction and practice. When you pay for learning, ask how things work, why things don't work and how to adapt what you learn to your own profession and life. With a high burnout rate in the first five years, the presence of a mentor can avoid wasting a good mind, such as yours.
