你的创业导师应该具备哪些品质

Linda Lacina 2015年03月04日

找到一位好导师并不容易,而且并非你仰慕的那个人就适合给你当导师。许多专家认为,一位理想的导师应该解决过你正在面临的问题,适合你目前所处的阶段,最重要的是,导师应该非常了解你。

    找到一位导师并不容易,而且并非你所仰慕的人都适合这项任务。在近期进行的一次在线讨论会上,我们向小企业与领导力领域的专家们提出了一个问题——有效的导师有哪些共同品质?下面是他们的建议。

    • 他们解决过你正面临的问题。教育初创公司Femgineer创始人普尔尼玛•维贾亚申科建议,找一位熟悉你当前处境的人作为导师。Femgineer的宗旨是为女性提供技术与领导力支持。一位潜在的导师或许并非来自你所在的领域,但理想人选应该经历过你正在研究的问题,比如融资或积累客户群体。

    • 他们适合你目前所处的阶段。随着公司的发展,你可以寻找新的顾问,这一点不需要有疑虑。玛利亚•孔特拉雷斯-斯威特在担任美国小企业管理局局长之前创建过多家公司,比如,她曾经在加州创建过一家当地拉丁美洲人迫切需要的银行。她表示,在企业发展的不同阶段,她通常需要不同的导师,帮助自己思考如何正确应对法律或财务问题。孔特拉雷斯-斯威特表示,他们可以是朋友组成的“厨房内阁”顾问团,你可以根据不同的挑战向他们寻求帮助。

    • 他们了解你。美国大通银行全国销售总监珍妮•皮普扎克表示,她的大多数导师都不会把自己定义为“导师”,但她还是会向他们寻求支持和指导。向那些最了解你、对你所面临的状况最清楚的人请教,才是最明智的。(财富中文网)

    Finding a mentor isn’t easy and not every person you admire is perfect for the task. In a recent online panel, we asked our experts in small business and leadership what qualities effective mentors share. Here’s what they suggest.

    • They’ve solved the problems you’re facing right now.Find someone who understands what you’ve gone through, says Poornima Vijayashanker, the founder of Femgineer, an education startup that supports women in tech and leadership. A potential mentor might not be in your field, but the ideal match will have experience facing issues you’re researching right now, such as raising funding or building a customer base.

    • They fit the stage you’re in.Don’t be afraid to look to new advisors as your business grows. Maria Contreras-Sweet launched several businesses before becoming administrator for the U.S. Small Business Administration, including launching a much-needed Latino-founded bank in California. She says that she often needed different mentors at different times to help her think the right way about legal or financial issues. These can be friends that you lean on, says Contreras-Sweet, a sort of ‘kitchen cabinet’ of advisors you can call on depending on that day’s challenge.

    • They know you well.Jenn Piepszak, a national sales executive at Chase says that most of her mentors wouldn’t self-identify as a ‘mentor’ but that she looks to them all the same for support and guidance. Tap into those who know you best and understand the context for the situations you really face.
