Are you in need of an older confidant to confide in? A listening ear perhaps? Someone to bounce off your ideas or your frustrations? I find that many leaders are lonely and cannot confide in the people that they work with or even their board. That is part of the mentoring process that I love with younger leaders.
I love mentoring leaders. Sometimes it is very organic and informal, other times it is a more formal agreement. Sometimes there is no cost involved, other times I am hired in a more formal fashion. You might not even know that you need a confidential listening ear.
Here is a typical agreement that I make with leaders who need a listening ear and the wisdom of an older man.
Mentoring leaders is my passion. I enjoy helping church and ministry leaders take their leadership to the next level. I seek to challenge and stretch those I mentor as well as provide an outside sounding board for leadership wisdom and decision-making. My process is organic and is focused on answering this question for you, “How can I help you?” There is no perfect template for every leader and organization. There are no contracts in my relationship with those I mentor and consult. We agree to journey together for a season and set guidelines.
Goal of this mentoring relationship:
Guidelines and Perimeters:
I work with clients on a month to month basis with no long-term contracts. As long as I provide value, we move forward.
I can provide references upon request from other ministries I have helped along their journeys.
