Mentorship

I’ve mentored individuals in many different capacities and companies at different stages, from new managers to new CTOs. But Hartley, $30/month just for mentorship? Surprisingly, many mentorship platforms like Plato start off at $80 for 30 minutes, regardless of frequency. Benefits of one-on-one mentorship with me:

  • Personalized attention: With mentoring and coaching, you receive one-on-one attention and support that is tailored to your unique needs and goals.

  • Accountability: Working with a mentor provides a sense of accountability that can be difficult to achieve on one's own. Individuals are more likely to follow through on their commitments and make progress toward their goals when they have someone to answer to.

  • Expert guidance: I bring expertise and experience to the table, providing you with valuable insights and advice that you may not have access to otherwise.

  • Overcoming obstacles: Many people encounter obstacles or challenges on the road to achieving their goals. I can help identify and overcome these obstacles, providing support and guidance along the way.

  • Improved confidence and motivation: Working with me can help build confidence and stay motivated, even in the face of setbacks or challenges.

  • Unbiased, direct feedback: An external mentor can offer a unique perspective that differs from that of an internal mentor. With a fresh set of eyes and a diverse range of experiences from their own company and industry, an external mentor can bring invaluable insights and ideas to the table. Moreover, they may introduce new approaches and alternatives to existing processes, offering a fresh and innovative take on traditional methods.

Investing in one-on-one mentoring can be a game changer for your career and your organization.

Areas of Expertise:

  • Management as a practice

  • Team process improvements

  • Performance management, goal creation, and setting expectations

  • Onboarding, hiring, and interviewing processes

  • Cross-functional work with product managers and stakeholders

  • Optimization and efficiency improvements for teams

  • Working with distributed teams
