EO Mentorship fosters relationships aimed at high-level leadership and personal development within a structured timeframe. Throughout the mentorship process, Mentees work toward goals and establish personal accountability, while Mentors support them through next-level education and engagement.
How does it work?
EO Mentorship relationships last 10-12 months, during which the Mentee and Mentor meet face-to-face for one to three hours each month to work toward setting and realizing personalized, measurable and attainable goals. EO will help facilitate the application and matching process, and kick off pairs at a launch event. From there, Mentees drive the relationship, with an EO Mentorship Chair checking in periodically to ensure healthy progress. After a year, the relationship ends with a celebration of achievements. As a way to “pay it forward,” Mentees are encouraged to serve as a Mentor to an EO Accelerator and EO GSEA participant, or another EO member.
What would you give for the ability to tap into a group of 7-10 fellow business owners who can offer you direction based on their experiences? Your Forum is designed to meet your unique needs as an entrepreneur and help you reach new measures of success and significance. Held monthly, Forum meetings allow you to dig deep, personally and professionally, in a safe and non-judgmental environment.
Moderator-trained EO members guide the sessions, which emphasize confidentiality, personal responsibility and lessons learned. Members don’t give advice; they speak from prior experience, letting you draw your own conclusions on how to best proceed. Upon joining EO, your chapter’s Forum Chair will work to get you in a Forum, and will ensure that you are placed with the right number and mix of business owners to avoid sharing the room with competitors.
Our Forum program is under constant development and improvement, and new groups—like MyEO, regional and spousal Forums—are always in formation at the chapter level. In fact, we now offer five new formats in our Advanced Forum Series, all of which dive deeper into specific challenges faced by the entrepreneur. You can join a Forum in your area as a member of EO.
