What benefits will a mentor bring to your business?

Many people think that business mentors are only valuable to start-up businesses.  On the contrary, mentoring is even more important for established businesses. Successful business owners will seek advice at key points in their journey as they plan to improve their performance and improve results. 

Chris Dowling is a highly experienced business owner and mentor with over 40 years of frontline experience. During his business career, there aren’t many challenges and situations that Chris has not faced when it comes to running a successful business. As a mentor, he is a sounding board, critical friend and business consultant, providing support and guidance.  Chris helps his clients to achieve the success they want and deserve – his objective is YOUR SUCCESS.

Why is mentoring so useful for existing established businesses?

Mentoring is a great way to check on how you are running your business,  to reflect and to plan ahead.  Many business owners are so busy working on the day to day demands of their business they do not find the time to look at the bigger picture – no criticism, that’s the way it is. Often, when running a business, the focus is on the clients, customers, finances, sales figures and the staff – all important. However, this means the owner is working ‘in the business, not on the business’. 

Work with Chris Dowling and you will benefit from a person-centred mentoring approach, tackling the issues and solving the problems that concern you. You can take a look at how you operate in your business and also look at your wider goals and targets and the results achieved.

Business development - mentoring for established businesses

There are many different aspects to business mentoring, but support and understanding for the business owner are key to the service.  Chris offers mentoring services that are tailored to you and your situation – no fixed programmes, no fixed ideas, just the opportunity to talk, analyse and assess to move forward.  Please feel free to get in touch to discuss your situation and to plan the best path forward.
