There are a lot of things a franchise
owner can talk to his or her mentor about. There’s always something out there you can chat over via messenger, email, the phone or even face-to-face over a cup of coffee now and then. So why is it that many mentor/protégé relationships feel a bit awkward and at a loss for words?
Well, people get nervous for all kinds of reasons. You don’t want to give the wrong advice. Maybe a topic you had planned to share might not pan out just right, or you could just genuinely be stuck for words. So, with that in mind, here are a few really good sources you can check out for topic details.
The WSI Coffee Break
— Our monthly webinar series which explores topics of direct interest to WSI employees, like the products and services offered in the WSI eMarketplace. Whether heavy or lighthearted, the material covered in this series is a gold mine of potential discussion topics for you to ask your mentor about. It can serve as an icebreaker to lead on to other topics, or be the whole discussion itself.
— Same idea, though with less video! The written form is a bit different from the visual, so the ideas conveyed can be a bit different, and the net is cast a bit wider for topics. Check out the blog when it updates, and if something sticks in your mind, ask your mentor about it.
