One of the key components of any coaching and mentoring program are of course the people who will be of service to entrepreneurs - the mentors. We have been very specific about who could fit for the job at hand. It is not an easy task to combine the inner realm of human psyche and the outer practical world of business. You can find many great persons in either of these categories but to combine such qualities in one person is an art of a lifetime.
We have been looking for diversity in cultural backgrounds and in fields of expertise but most importantly how mentors approach the topic of mentoring. Understanding how humans operate, how to be of support to inner growth and how business mindset is working, are the essentials for any mentor.

How to – from human being to being human. I used to be an entrepreneur, founded over 6 companies myself, felt being successful, while I was outer world driven. And still I see myself in that entrepreneurial environment, today more as a source of inspiration for the millennials or young entrepreneurs and start up I deal with.
I see true knowledge as a personal experience and personal power as result of impeccable execution in all daily matters. I stand for personal power and freedom from social conditioning. I represent not only passive acceptance of what is but also active participation in life to fight for what I believe in.
Mentoring for me is about creating a mirror for you, so that you can see how your motivations within the business will contribute to your success. I will also help you understand any beliefs/attitudes that you have that could get in the way of what you want to achieve, and how to resolve those things.
For each Mentoring Event we have always invited some additional Guest Mentors. This has been a great way to learn about new coaching approaches and to keep us always on our toes - complacency is a very dangerous companion.
If you know someone who might be a great Guest Mentor for .Cocoon then you are welcome to share your suggestion with us. Or perhaps you are the one who finds mentoring as a path of your hearth and feels the resonance with the values of .Cocoon?
Below are the honored Guests from past Mentoring Events with whom we feel proud of having shared many great memorable experiences!
The big WHY is a deep respect for diversity and a strong value for wishing improvement towards life happiness for all who so wish.
My aprroach to Mentoring is that every person is unique. No one are perfect but everyone have something valuable to give.
Looking holistically at day-to-day challenges, talents, life circumstances, business issues, life patterns, your experience and knowledge, successes, beliefs, values, mindsets, relationships and power.
My approach to mentoring is customer focused and pragmatic, making sure that even the wildest dreams have a strong foundation in business and keen eye on customers.
I am a strong believer that it is the human beings in businesses that are their primary asset and who, when they get into quality relationships with each other, make the biggest difference.
