The Fastest Path to Your Goal

Mentoring versus Coaching
Coaching and mentoring are very different. Let me show you.
If someone is searching for personal happiness, you wouldn't tell them that they need to take up tennis, find a nice Jewish girl, and settle down in Dartmouth with three children. That's far too directive. Rather, you'd help them to understand who they are, and then you'd show them what that insight has to say about how they can be happy. Then you might help them to see their options and the fears which hold them back, and so on. That's coaching.
On the other hand, you wouldn't coach someone that way on how to change a flat tyre. Instead, you'd show them exactly how to do it. Then you might invite them to change a wheel of their own, and watch them do it - pointing out tweaks in technique here and there "Hold the spanner this way". That's mentoring.
Each approach has its place. Sometimes either will do, and sometimes both are necessary.
Fast Track Mentoring
Fast-Track Mentoring is a cocktail; it's mentoring mixed with additional written support, and it's applicable in situations like these:
Each of these situations arise often in my coaching practice, and for each, over time, I've found the best techniques, the common pitfalls, and how to overcome them. That makes them great candidates for fast track mentoring.
Each Fast Track package includes a special report containing all of my years of experience, distilled down to 5,000 words or so. Here's a sample table of contents:
But it doesn't stop with the special report, because reading is a funny thing.
When you move knowledge between brains via writing you lose a lot, and often, what you lose is the most important stuff. That's mostly because of the reader's beliefs, their skepticism, misunderstandings, and so on. That's why the special report on its own is valuable - but it isn't the full answer.
First, read the special report. Make notes about how thing apply to you - or how they don't. Jot down questions. Especially, write down what you plan not to do!
Now you're ready to book your mentoring. I'll help you apply the techniques from the special report in your own specific situation. We can explore your questions, doubts, fears and mental blind spots - whatever it takes to embed the lessons from the special report in your specific situation, in your specific brain. This is where the magic is!
