Maybe things are good:
new career… new business… new mom… new relationship… writing a book…
Maybe things aren’t so good:
lonely… hate your workplace… marriage troubles… self-doubt… depression…
I can’t think of anything that would be off-limits to talk about.
I don’t need to agree with or endorse any topic of conversation to be a trusted listener and/or a wise contributor. Many issues follow a common vein, or stem from a universal behaviour pattern or life experience; without even knowing all the details, I have the ability to quickly perceive your personal challenges, provoke perspective, and serve your goals.
How do you know I’m the Mentor for You?
Truthfully: trial and error.
Rapport is key: do you feel safe, heard, respected, understood.
Do you sense trust and credibility in my words – and in my eyes.
Was there productivity in your session. Do you feel a shift:
lighter, stronger, contemplative, inspired, armed with new tools, curious…
Ponder the list below; I have significant PERSONAL or FIRST-HAND (someone I’ve supported ongoing) experience with the following topics/situations, among many others. Hopefully this reinforces that you’re certainly not the first person with questions, and that choosing a mentoring relationship with me will serve your needs. (BOLDS are my personal favorites to work with!)
