We all have the power to shine.

What separates the ones that succeed from the rest is hard work and a constant reminder of the goal at hand. The hard work is something no one can do instead of you. In the same time no easily obtained goal is an achievement that we value.
The soundboard for debate and drive to keep pushing further is what I can offer. My role as a mentor for your project is focused on maintain the eyes on the final goal – you succeeding in obtaining the certification.

„Show me a successful individual and I’ll show you someone who had real positive influences in his or her life. I don’t care what you do for a living—if you do it well I’m sure there was someone cheering you on or showing the way.
A mentor.” — Denzel Washington

I strongly believe that for mentoring to work and produce positive results, there has to be the right match between mentee and mentor. This is why at the basis of my mentoring approach is to start with a discovery call. I want to make sure that I’m the right person to guide you through the journey. In this way, I can be there cheering and helping you find the path.
The purpose of this call is to determine if we should move on to setting up a mentoring agreement.

Below is the sequence of steps from the first call to final sign-off so that you can better understand what follows.
