I have introduced a mentoring plan for fellow PR and communication pros, which is a blend of mentoring and development coaching.
I’ve always been passionate about helping people in the industry and I care about the future of it. I call myself an industry ambassador as I want to advocate the highest of standards in practice as well as help people get to where they want to be.
The model I will use includes personal and professional development and it will initiate exploration and support execution.
It will look at the challenges mentees face, choices to be made (and the consequences/outcomes), creative solutions (I like to think outside the box) and then evaluate progress.
What the plan also includes:
- access to my experience and thinking
- initial exploration consultation about the ‘why’ and agree goals
- development plan
- a monthly catch-up Zoom
- shared experience
- introductions to contacts
- free access to resources I’ve already created
- constructive feedback
- everyone will be treated equally, as human beings
- I’ll challenge you!
The spaces for the pilot Mentoring and Development Coaching plan have now been filled. I’ve taken on three mentees.
The next intake for mentees will be 1 November. The cost will be £675 for four months or £1,500 for nine months. I’m happy to discuss payment plans.
