Motivation

Bo finds great satisfaction in helping others and sees the mentor role being part of his development as a leader. He will attempt to help a potential mentee shape their personal profile and brand, advise on actions around their personality traits, spar on difficult issues, and use a combination of coaching and mentoring techniques.

Bo expects drive, openness and honesty from his mentee – if they want him as a mentor, they should reach out, they should bring their issues or problems and share them openly in a trusting and confidential atmosphere that they can build and maintain together. When meeting, he wants to see or hear that action has been taken as agreed in our preceding meetings.

A mentee’s success is his reward.
