MENTORSHIP IN AGRIBUSINESS

Mentorship Class

"Your mentor is not the one who counsels you, but the one whose counsel you follow." -

There are two ways to learn in life:

i. Mistakes

ii. Mentors

"There are only two pains in life: Pain of discipline and pain of regret."

It takes discipline to stick to a mentor, and it reflects positively in all dimensions of your life - spiritual, physical, financial, career, social, family, intellectual - when you actually do.

Mentorship is the process of wisdom transfer.

Who is a good mentor?

1. Someone who looks like your future.

2. Someone who is your life coach. It's important to understand that mentorship is holistic, encompassing every area of life, not just an aspect.

3. Someone who is your destiny tour guide.

4. Someone who shows you how to move from point A to point B.

5. Someone who provides to you the wisdom that helped him succeed.

6. Someone who distills the wisdom in the form you could easily assimilate it and use it.

7. Someone who is ready to take on the task to empower and equip you for your destiny.

8. Someone who is willing to be open and honest with you.

9. Someone who helps you develop mastery with minimum pain.

10. Someone who can pick your reality and destiny in his spirit.

A mentor is someone who is ahead of you. Your mentor should have reached where you'll like to be 10 years from now.

Benefits of having a good mentor:

1. It multiplies your productivity.

2. It gives you speed in destiny.

3. It reduces your pain.

4. It transfers the wisdom of the mentor on you.

5. It transfers the goodwill and influence of the mentor on you.

Effects of lacking mentorship: the disadvantage of having a mentor is massive and include;

1. Your life will be wrecked by avoidable mistakes.

2. You set yourself up for multiple pain.

3. You set yourself up for serial misfortune.

4. You program your life for sustained stagnation.

5. You experience deep sufferings.

When selecting a mentor, there are 3 major things you should look forward to collecting from the mentor:

1. The wisdom of the mentor

2. The spirit of the mentor

3. The platform (the systems/structures he has used)

These 6 ways of connecting with your mentor help you capture the spirit of your mentor. They include:

1. Words.

In church, your pastor and in mosque your immune is your mentor. .

2. Physical appearance and observation.

3. Service


4. Stirring questions; questions that increase your knowledge.

5. Giving.

6. Impactation.

A protégé is an enthusiastic learner. If a protégé is not changing/growing, it means he is not learning.

There are 5 types of protégés:

1. Passive protégés: Convenience is their dominant mind set. If it's not convenient they will be unavailable. 
 
2. Parasite protégés: The credibility of the mentor is their major mind set. They want the of the mentor but not his process.

3. Prodigal protégés: Currency is their dominant mind set. When crises, challenges come up they are no where to be found.

4. Productive protégés: Contribution is their dominant mind set. There are always thinking how to value-add their mentor.

5. Profitable protégés: These go beyond contribution to commitment.

We should endeavour to be productive and profitable protégés.

Qualities of an uncommon protégé:

1. The uncommon protégé will invest everything to stay in the presence of the mentor.

2. The uncommon protégé follows the mentor's counsel.

REMEMBER THAT MENTORSHIP IS A LIFE LONG JOURNEY AND END WHEN YOUR MENTOR EXIT OR DIE.
