What Is Business Menteeship ? Why isn’t it a Mentorship?
Why the Bullring Academy Menteeship is a Market Disturbing Innovation?
Traditional industry mentoring is based upon the premise of indentured servitude. This ancient system of on-the-job training goes back to the guilds of the middle ages. Inexperienced and developing professionals signed a contract known as an ‘indenture’, binding them to serve a master for seven years in exchange for learning his trade.
Its all about YOU!
Bullring Academy Menteeships break this archaic and outdated system which is singularly focused upon the business outcomes and profit of the mentor.
In contrast a Bullring Academy Menteeships is based upon the proactive effort by self-leaders to establish, manage, and sustain a relationship with a mentor who will guide and support the mentee in the achievement of goals, outcomes, and vision.
This market disturbing innovation has the following benefits:
