Mentoring and coaching
At Riversands, we believe that coaching and mentoring have different roles and both play a crucial part in developing entrepreneurial skills and personal effectiveness.
Coaching is a structured process to improve the entrepreneur’s ability to do the various and functions need to make a business successful. This can include selling, managing a sales pipeline, marketing, finance, people management, administration through to quality management and the technical aspects of manufacturing. An entrepreneur may be assigned a different coach for different skill sets. Coaching at Riversands is done both one-on-one and in groups.
The original sense of the word mentor is a “wise or trusted advisor or teacher”. At Riversands, mentors are experienced, successful business people who preferably come from the same industry as the entrepreneur they are mentoring. They are able to pass on knowledge that cannot be found in textbooks and open doors to otherwise out-of-reach opportunities.
Mentors are typically busy people whose availability to meet with an entrepreneur may be limited to one or two hours every two or three months. However, the extensive experience our mentors have usually allows them to quickly identify key issues and offer valuable insights and suggestions within that time.
