Impacts and benefits of mentoring 

Through Réseau M, mentored entrepreneurs can tap into the insight and experience of a seasoned business professional to get a better handle on the situations they are faced with and sharpen their entrepreneurial acumen. 

Mentors share what they have learned over time and provide food for thought to guide mentees in the decision-making process and make informed choices. With each successive interaction, mentors cement their role as a respected confidant, thus empowering their mentees to withstand the challenges before them.

What mentors do:

  • Help mentees escape the isolation common to many entrepreneurs
  • Listen and ask questions
  • Prompt mentees to see problems from a different angle
  • Identify possible solutions
  • Are a source of encouragement and motivation
  • Provide a critical perspective
  • Give feedback on mentees’ overall outlooks and attitudes
  • Supply real-world examples drawn from their own experience
  • Adhere to a strict code of confidentiality.

What mentors don’t do:

  • Assist mentees in managing their business
  • Serve as a consultant or expert advisor
  • Tell mentees what to do (be it through a business action plan or a set mentoring “curriculum”)
  • Establish a business relationship with mentees
  • Refer mentees within their own networks
  • Invest in a mentee’s business
  • Receive compensation for their services.
