So we would like to introduce you to our mentors:
What is Mentoring?
Mowgli defines mentoring as a relationship which inspires, empowers and guides an individual in achieving his/her full potential. You can then say that 'A mentor will tell you what you need to hear not what you want to hear.
Mowgli sees a Mentor as someone who stands beside you in a shoulder-to-shoulder relationship and works with you to empower you to achieve your potential by developing your own leadership, thought processes and decision-making capabilities. They do this by acting as a listener, friend, mirror and objective sounding board. They don’t tell you what to do but empower you with hope, aspiration, motivation and true support.
Program Benefits for Entrepreneurs
You will learn about the philosophies, principles and value of mentoring, connect with other budding entrepreneurs and be matched with a trained mentor who will support you in increasing your chances of sustainable growth and success, on both a personal and business level.
