Where and how
Mentoring is precious. It is your time to explore what really matters to you. Consequently, I endeavour to meet at a time, place and frequency that works best for you. As a result:
- Some mentoring sessions are 30 minutes in length and others are several hours
- Mentoring sessions can be conducted face to face, by Skype or by phone. Furthermore, face to face sessions can be conducted indoors or via walks outdoors. They have even been conducted in hammocks! The best location, is the one that works best for you.
- The gap between mentoring sessions can be a few days, or several months
- Mentoring sessions can be at regular intervals, or as and when
If you would like to explore the possibility of mentoring further, I would suggest an initial phone conversation. The call would clarify mch’s mentoring process and ascertain whether mentoring is appropriate for you or those in your organisation. If appropriate this would be followed by a face to face conversation to test the rapport of the relationship. Please feel free to call on +44 (0)7932 918 767.
Mentoring is first and foremost a relationship. Consequently, the situation may arise where you, I, or both of us do not feel there is sufficient rapport to develop an effective mentoring relationship. If this arises, mch would be happy to recommend other mentors that may prove suitable.
