Mentoring for the undecidedYou dream of making the next step in your career but do not know where you are heading? This WoT package was made for you.
- You are looking for a new position / challenge / idea, or you want to change career direction, but you are finding it impossible to decide what is your calling AND at the same time what is going to provide for you and your family. (We feel you.)
- You love doing a lot of things but you do not know if you are good at any of these. You are not sure whether your wishes are equally or even more important than the undeniable “obstacles” you may be facing – your experience, or lack of, the financial crisis, unemployment. (Been there.)
So, you are seeking guidance and support in order to better understand what you want your next professional step to be. (Cheers!)
Mentoring alone can not really help you deal with those issues. Here’s why;
Because mentors are not professional counselors. They are people who are successful in their work and can simply share their experience and knowledge.
Because a mentor must ideally come from the professional field where you come from (or where you want to go), so she does not have the wide experience you need in order to explore many different professional fields.
Because targeting and prioritizing are often inextricably linked to lots of deeply seated personal issues and require systematic personal work that can bypass the insecurities and misconceptions we all carry inside.
We have created a new Coaching & Mentoring package that can effectively support those of you who are looking for a new direction in life. The package includes:
- 4 Coaching Sessions (total duration 1-2 months) with one of our carefully selected Women On Top coaches. Our coaches are trained professionals who can, within a specific timeframe, help you set your goals, conclude your initial exploration to 1 or 2 professional fields that are calling out to you, and gain a clear picture of what your next professional steps should be.
- A 6-month mentoring cycle with a WoT mentor from the field of your choice Or 2 3-month mentoring cycles with two WoT mentors from two different fields you want to explore.
- Throughout the process, continuous monitoring by the WoT team, with frequent feedback requests and hands-on support.
The cost of the 2 in 1 Coaching & Mentoring package is 220 euros + VAT. You can pay via PayPal or by bank transfer to Piraeus Bank (IBAN GR16 0172 0130 0050 1308 7083 678, beneficiary: THE FAMILY HUB OE).
