Mentorship Program – Mentor

PAY IT FORWARD:

 

EO Mentorship fosters relationships that aim for high-level leadership and personal development within a structured timeframe. Throughout the mentorship, Mentees work toward goals and create personal accountability, while Mentors support them with shared insights, perspectives and experiences.

 

HOW DOES IT WORK?

 

EO Mentorship lasts 10-12 months. In this time, Mentors will meet face-to-face for one to three hours per month. The EO LA Mentorship Chair(s) will pair the Mentor with a Mentee based on their development goals and a Mentor’s expertise.

 

The Mentees are responsible for driving the relationship forward by scheduling meetings, sharing goals and reporting on their progress. The Mentor’s role is to share experiences and act as a sounding board for the Mentee.

 

After the program is over, the Mentor and Mentee may part ways or continue in an informal relationship.

 

AN IDEAL MENTOR IS SOMEONE WHO:

 

  • Enjoys connecting with someone at the start of their entrepreneurial journey
  • Can commit to regular meetings with a Mentee
  • Has great listening skills and provides effective feedback
  • Will hold a Mentee accountable to his or her goals
