Coaching for Entrepreneurs

Whenever entrepreneurs share their success stories with Robert and me, we hear a lot of common themes. One of the most prominent themes is the importance that a trusted and compassionate mentor plays in short-term and long-term business success.

It’s because entrepreneurs — at every stage of their personal and professional lives — place such a high value on mentoring that it shouldn’t be a surprise that an industry has arisen that draws on many of the principles of mentoring. That industry: “business coaching”.

We recently had a chance to sit down with Robin Kennedy — an enthusiastic business coach — to hear about her success and how she ignites it in others. Listen to BusinessCast Podcast #78, Coaching for Success and decide for yourself if/when business coaching can help you achieve your goals. At the same time, learn how to squeeze the most from any advisor by listening to How to Get the Most Out of Your Business Advisor.

Success Guaranteed: Mentor…Always

Every successful entrepreneur is a life-time learner. And, its easy to understand why: learning new ideas means being better equipped to anticipate and leverage any challenge that your business is going to face. So, one of the surest ways to ensure your success is to build learning into your company’s way of operating.

Mentoring can help you achieve that on-going learning because it compels you/your company to constantly re-examine your business and evolve. The folks at BNET have developed a very good primer to help you in the early stages of pulling together a mentoring program.

Also, keep a look-out later this Fall as Robert and I will devote an episode of the BusinessCast podcast to help you determine:

  • When you should begin your mentoring program
  • How to keep a mentoring program on track and;
  • How to repair mentoring programs.
