Mowgli Mentoring Program: THE NEXT SOCIETY Regional Mentoring Program

I wanted to give back and help others overcome challenges and find their way towards success.

It was a very nice experience and we became good friends, and our connection became stronger over time. We were able to open up freely and discuss work, and personal matters as well as challenges which led to us exploring possible solutions. A charge of positivity and new level of energy has always been the outcome of our meetings.

I appreciate the tools and techniques learnt over the course of this program, mostly around self-exploration and self-awareness. The journey of connecting with other people at multiple levels to help them consider new perspectives and alternative solutions as well as opportunities in their entrepreneurial journey has been rewarding. It feels great to be able to give entrepreneurs a push of optimism and energy coupled with helping them realize the need for creating a healthy balance between work and personal lives so as to achieve a new level of happiness.

I actually started using the mentoring techniques among my personal and work life surroundings, and have also started mentoring new entrepreneurs. It’s pleasant to know that that I can make a difference in other people’s lives.

I believe if mentoring is utilized in the right perspective and with proper matching, it can highly elevate the outcome of innovation among start-ups, entrepreneurs, and other related entities in the regional ecosystem. I also believe mentoring relationships can create bridges of support and solidarity within the same country and across borders, which can help overcome challenges of understanding of new markets to increase chances of scalability and growth.

I highly encourage mentoring as it creates a greater level of bonding amongst human beings. Individuals are empowered to reach out, and connect more effectively within an environment that is structured as expectations are clear, and support is provided to achieve desirable outcomes. It supports exploring new ways and options on how we can embrace life at both personal and professional levels.
