Kinaway Mentoring & Business Coaching

The Kinaway Business Mentoring & Coaching Program is a voluntary program that allows people to spend time with, and benefit from, the experience and knowledge of someone who will guide and encourage them in their business.

Program overview

The program is a new program for Kinaway members to help them develop and grow their businesses through peer support and business guidance.

There are two elements to the program, business mentoring and business coaching. Business mentoring and business coaching are similar, but involve different skills and a different approach.

A mentor is an advisor and ‘sounding board’ who you can discuss ideas with and assess the viability of those ideas and it is generally a longer term relationship between the mentor and the mentee. Coaching is shorter term and more structured, a coach helps you improve your ability to do business tasks and understand them.
