The benefits of being mentored
For athletes, coaches and business people alike, working with a mentor can reap great rewards. We have seen how being mentored greatly enhances self awareness and communication skills.
Mentoring can also provide a range of techniques for different sporting and business situations. Learn more about how a mentor can benefit you as a coach or sailor.
I work with coaches at all levels. Mentoring with the British Sailing Team, Podium Development and Youth programme helps their coaches develop coaching techniques for managing different situations.
The process of working with a personal mentor can be particularly beneficial for new coaches just starting out on their coaching careers.
I am a fully trained mentor as well as a highly experienced sports coach. I have pioneered the introduction of a mentoring into sailing, for the benefit of both coaches and the athletes.
I gained my professional qualifications with Ashridge Management College’s Sport Business Partnership and was selected by UK Sport as the only sailing coach on the programme, where I was privileged to work and train with top coaches from a variety of other sports.
