As a knowledge entrepreneur, I experience both, benefits of challenges, of doing things by myself. Technology facilitates delivering value at scale but some things are hard to solve alone. Coaching, mentoring, and guiding are powerful tools available to any entrepreneur.
Let's have a Salon conversation about it. Here's a list of ideas as a conversation starter:
Being coached, mentored, or guided creates accountability and motivation. How can you leverage this for yourself? How can you help other people with it?
It seems like more and more people choose to either to become a coach or to receive coaching. Where does this rise come from and what can we learn from it?
What is the difference between a coach and a mentor? When should you consider the one or the other, or maybe even both?
What does it take to become a coach, mentor or guide for others in your area of expertise?
I recently started to assist two explorers on their journey to become knowledge entrepreneurs. When I thought about my role, coach didn't feel right and so we called it mentorship at first. After a few days I switched to the following formulation:
I offer myself as a guide for knowledge entrepreneur explorers. Being a little further down the road I can help. They tell me where they want to go and I advise and then go with them. That way they reach their target location faster and more secure.
Tipp: if you are interested in coaching, you should listen to the second season of the Against the Rules podcast by Michael Lewis, where he investigates different angles of coaching in America (listen to this short intro). I'll share a few takeaways and memories from listening to the episodes at the Salon.
Each week we are meeting with a different topic for knowledge entrepreneurs to increase our knowledge through conversation ✨ and find community in the process 🤗
Please register here at Luma to receive the Zoom link as this allows me to better plan and prepare the logistics.
The event is scheduled for 45 minutes. I'll open with a 10-minute introduction and then open up for discussion and questions. Afterward, there may or may not be an informal fireside chat 🔥
This is a live-only event via Zoom. There will be no recording.
I am going to share the highlights on the event page and my newsletter in the days after the call.
If you can't attend this event because of its time slot, please ping me on Twitter with a time slot suggestion, so that I can consider this for future events.
