I am happy to announce my new Business Mentoring.
I would love to see what you do, what you’re planning, where are the friction points might be and how I can use my experience both in personal development and in innovation methods to help your business grow and find harmony
We’ll work in an integral way, seeing the product in relation to the business model, service design and customer experience,marketing and promotion. We’ll also look at what agile methods, technologies and personal aspects are enhancing or limiting what you do. The soul of the business is you!
During my holistic coaching sessions, I realized that for many, inner peace is connected to our business. Many have their hearts in business and business in their hearts.
I have worked supporting entrepreneurship since 2013. For 4 years, I worked with a global startup program at Google, running workshops, business mentoring and trainings for Startups and Mentors in EMEA and the Americas. (More about my experience on LinkedIn)
I want to share what I learned and help you validate or invalidate crucial aspects of your project or company - as well as empower the human aspects that drive it.
How does Mentoring work?
The process lasts between 3 to 6 sessions of 2 hours each. Sessions combine conversation with performance. In the sessions we will see key aspects of your business, such as:
The business model and the product within the Business Model Canvas.
Service Design and Customer Experience Mapping
Marketing & Promotion
Technology and Tools
The Soul of the Business (You and or your team)
My approach is more that of a coach than that of a consultant: I will guide you so that you learn about the process instead of giving you the answers because the idea is that after those sessions you will not need me again ( "... Teach a person to fish and you feed them for a lifetime")
For whom it is?
This program is designed mainly for independent entrepreneurs, startup teams, owners and leaders in SMEs. It is also for people who are just thinking about starting a business and want to validate their ideas.
