Your business is unique, with its own strategic, market and operational challenges run by you and your leadership team. To support you in your business, or members of your senior leadership team or other key people, you must have a well-matched business mentor or business coach who is a good fit with your strategic profile and specific needs.
At International Business Mentors, we routinely analyse business mentoring requirements. We then recommend a close match with a suitable business mentor or coach.
Business leaders effectively benefit from a business mentor in deep and broad ways:
A business mentor or coach guides you as a business leader to draw your own conclusions for decision making. They will challenge you on your purpose and ambitions and the business’s performance in delivering these in terms of your strategy, customers and operations, financial performance and returns.
Although your business may be successful, you might need a challenge to deliver on its greater potential and to fill in any knowledge or skill gaps.
To challenge yourself with confidential support, you should get your own business mentor or coach who can confidentially and constructively question all relevant areas of your business’ strategy and performance, including customers, competition, marketing, sales, finances, funding, shareholders, people, operations and supply chain.
Other areas for discussion might include developing strategy, clarifying risk appetite, business purpose, values, mission, corporate governance, business and marketing plans, management, administration, diversity of products and services, and future business and succession plans.
Here are some examples of questions a business mentor or coach from International Business Mentors may ask to assess and approach some of these disciplines:
