THE ARDENT APPROACH
In this module, Lloyd talks about the four essential ingredients to great mentoring.
Vetting High Capacity Mentees
In this module, Lloyd describes the way Ardent vets mentees.
Strategic Use of Stories
Effective mentoring involves etching your teaching in your mentee's mind through memorable stories. In this module, Lloyd describes how he does this in his mentoring.
Making your Life Wisdom Accessible
What are the top five to seven most important things you have learned in your long career – these are your leadership lessons. Lloyd describes this skill, and how to use this in your mentoring.
Turning Ideas Into Action
The essence of this skill is to end your conversations by reflecting on what you have heard your mentee say as you have used questions and stories to uncover the challenges and opportunities they face and ask them to confirm the action steps they plan to take to move forward.
Guiding the Creative Process
Often the most significant obstacle within an entrepreneur's pathway to success is a failure of the imagination. As their mentor, our role is not to solve the problem for them but to provide them with the space, courage, and impetus to begin the creative process.
The Joy is in the Results: Long Term Metrics
Mentoring can have a long gestation period. It can be decades before you see the real compounding impact of your efforts. So we have a system to help you capture the results in the near term both empirically and in the softer form of a story.
