Mentoring in the Middle
It seemed that a common opinion was that somewhere in the middle would be a better option, where people signing up for mentoring had direct access to the mentor(s) and that the destination was in line with the student's ambitions rather than a pre-defined start/end point.
Now I want to explore that middle ground a little more if I may as this middle ground is by far the broadest of the 3 types.
In the comments posted to the above discussion, it was suggest that people were probably open to paying between $200 and $500 in return for direct mentoring, perhaps at least one phone call each week to help move them forward with targeted actions to be taken in line with their expectations. There was also comments that any group should be smaller (i.e. not 1000+) as larger groups can dilute the effectiveness.
The question that I would like to ask now is this:
What would you feel was a reasonable expectation for duration?
Would you expect results after 1 month maybe?
Would you assume that 3 months was a reasonable time to expect returns on your investment?
or would you see a suitable mentoring program as being an ongoing relationship with a monthly commitment rather than an up front bigger investment?
Again please don't name any names on this thread so that we can survive the moderators and make this information useful to those who do operate mentoring programs.
