For entrepreneurs, turning a passion into a business is the ultimate dream. But that dream doesn’t come easily. It’s hard work, and there are challenges around every corner. Fortunately, entrepreneurs don’t have to go it alone. Their chance of success increases with access to the business knowledge and guidance of experienced professionals and partner with a Mentor & Co-Founder.
Top 5 Reasons Mentoring Matters
1 Entrepreneur perform better:
Having a dedicated person to go to with questions about your work and help you navigate the workplace is invaluable. Having a mentor helps a mentee feel more secure in their work, opens up lines of communication, and this has an organic effect on mentee performance. When a mentee feels comfortable asking questions and receives job-related support, they’ll shoot for the stars!
2 Develop new skills:
Not only can a mentoring partnership help younger and more inexperienced workers gain job-related skills, mentor & co-founder helps both parties develop soft skills such as working collaboratively with others. In turn, the organization benefits from having employees that demonstrate respect, understand workplace relationships and can work well with others.
3 Creates a better workplace environment:
Mentor & co-founder can lead to increased job satisfaction for both the mentor & co-founder and the entrepreneur. It fosters a network of both social and professional support within the company and can reduce stress levels for employees. Having someone to check in with and to share your ideas with can help relieve workplace anxiety for entrepreneur, and mentor & co-founder can connect on a personal level with more junior employees, essentially closing the knowledge and the social gaps that exist in some workplace cultures.
The benefits listed above all create a sense of satisfaction and belonging for employees on both sides of the mentoring & co-founding partnership. When both employees feel like they are being valued for their contributions, even on a one-to-one basis, then they’re more likely to stay in the game for the long haul. If the person being mentored has a senior person that’s easy to reach out to and their questions and concerns are being addressed, then why would they leave? For those providing mentorship & co-founding, they’re gaining leadership skills and having an impact on their entrepreneur’s career.
The mentoring relationship can be both personally and professionally rewarding. Each partner benefits from the relationship. Career-wise, having a seasoned professional to share their knowledge with a mentee can form the building blocks of a stellar career path. When it comes to mentor & co-founder, it’s rewarding to know they’re having a direct impact on their entrepreneur’s professional growth.
