6 Key Areas to Mentor your Staff

Uncategorized Apr 01, 2018

Schools struggle to keep staff members. Ensure you are doing everything you can to keep the young professionals in which you have invested. Stop creating temporary solutions and develop permanent ones for instructor professionalism in your school. You can do this by mentoring your young professionals so they grow in and outside of your business. 

Today’s young professionals are a unique crew. They come with real skills in the areas of technology, collaboration and brainstorming. However, it’s not uncommon for them to struggle in the face of temporary setbacks and disappointments. Many of them are searching, yet they don’t even realize it. 

It’s no secret that many believe young professionals are ill-equipped to survive in today’s highly competitive global economy. The reasons cited for this lack of preparation for life in the “real world” are commonly repeated across the board. They are: overprotective parenting, coddling by government programs, and the loss of many traditional coming-of-age rituals that have long been the norm in America. 

As a school owner and staff mentor, you have likely found that it’s now within your daily job description to help your young adults become adults. 

But there’s a plus side in their generation. Today’s young professionals are much more educated in health and wellness. They have a desire to lead balanced lives. They are much more aware of how to keep themselves in good shape. Further, they choose experiences over accumulating possessions. 

As the “product” of your business, they generally are very committed to being the best they can be. This, coupled with their technological literacy, creates tremendous opportunity for selling what you are preaching. 

The challenge for you, as a school owner, is keeping your young professional staff members on track. You may find it difficult to connect with them, but it’s imperative that you find ways to adjust your leadership style to meet their needs. If you can do this, you’ll produce future employees who will remain loyal to you and be more effective in reaching the goals you have set for your business. 

As a school owner, mentoring today’s young professionals is a significant responsibility that you must not overlook. They will learn the critical skills you need them to learn from you, as you work together to help your school survive and thrive. (You’ll learn from them, too.) 

Your school’s legacy depends on your ability to mentor your young professionals in six key areas: 

  • Professionalism in the workplace
  • Continuing education inside and outside of the martial arts
  • Health and wellness
  • Relationships
  • Goal-setting and long-term planning
  • Financial planning and fiscal responsibility
