How can I be an amazing mentor?
I am thinking about becoming a volunteer for Score or another small business mentorship program. I have been a small business owner for over 30 years and I want to help others start their business. I have been thinking about experiences I could share, as well as different management styles that have and haven't worked for me. What other factors should I consider before committing to being a mentor? What traits makes a great mentor? Thank you for sharing...
That is awesome that you are going to mentor. The best advice I can give is to allow the person to experience some failure. Too many times coaches and mentors try to minimize the lessons learned from failing. Give your advice, but do not try to control their learnings. If it involves a not so great result, use it as a teaching moment.
