Part of my professional work is serving as a private executive and leadership coach to successful corporate leaders and those who aspire to be. They pay me for my non-judgemental, passionate expertise that helps them move faster to a different level of success; one that feels more in line with what they truly want and that puts all of their amazing superpowers to work.
But I also serve as a mentor to a few people. As a mentor, I wear a slightly different hat than a coach. As a mentor, I share more about where I’ve been, what I’ve done, and what the other person might do.
How to Ask for a Mentor
1. Have the Right Expectations
2. Know What You Want to Learn
3. Commit to Doing the Work
4. Ask What You Can Do For Them
