How Do I Participate?
During the course of your partnership, mentees can ask their mentor for feedback or specific advice on business related topics. For both mentors and mentees, you must be able to commit to six hours of coaching over a three month period. Email communication with mentor/mentee between phone calls as necessary. If time permits, there could be additional in-person meetings as well. Both parties must be receptive to ideas, and mentees must be willing to accept guidance from their mentor. Each person may research each other’s company/background prior to meeting, however must keep absolute confidentiality.
If you are a mentee, you will be sent a questionnaire to help mentor understand what you want to learn.
