1. Why is Men of Iron mentoring executives and business owners? For years, Men of Iron Founder, Bryan Zeamer, looked for a business and life coach to help him grow in his faith as he scaled his business, ran a board of directors and led his family. He never found what he was looking for and knew there were other men who had a similar experience. Rather than sit idle, he decided to make a difference. He met with 2 local business owners who were scaling businesses and invited each of them into an executive mentorship. While business and finances were good for both men, their faith, family, friends and fitness were out of balance. God used both mentorships to restore balance in their lives. The mentorships also provided over $50,000 to Men of Iron! God used Bryan’s time and passion for mentoring men to not only change men’s lives, but to launch a social enterprise revenue model for Men of Iron.
2. Why should I be an executive mentor for Men of Iron? While many men in the marketplace are laser focused on results, their souls end up depleted due to living out of balance. Your commitment to 1-to-1 mentorship will provide a man with the accountability, balance and spiritual growth you both need to make greater kingdom impact. Mentoring will sharpen you as much as it sharpens a protege.
3. What’s the time commitment? 12 months – 2 meetings per month – 75 minute meetings
4. What else is included in the executive mentorship process? Men of Iron’s staff will walk you through the intake process for all executive mentorships. It includes a letter of recommendation, building a mentor profile, assessments and training. Each mentorship is also provided with the Strong27™ Mentorship Package, which includes Men of Iron’s Mentorship Guide, 5 books on faith, family, friends, fitness and finances and Men of Iron gear.
5. Who is responsible for the success of the mentorship? Mentorships are protégé-driven. It is the responsibility of the protégé to set goals, schedule meetings, initiate communication and to do the necessary work to accomplish his goals. Men of Iron’s staff also supports the success of your mentorship with quarterly mentorship evaluations. This feedback is shared with each mentor and protégé and keeps the mentorships moving forward.
6. Who is responsible for paying for the executive mentorship, what does it cost and where do the funds go? Protégés are responsible for payment. They can pay individually, or a business can pay for a protégé’s professional development. Men of Iron’s staff manages the billing process and will lead a discussion with you to determine an agreed upon price for mentorship that will go directly to Men of Iron’s 501(c)(3) operating budget.
7. How do I get matched with a protégé? Executive mentors have the choice of recruiting their own protégé, or Men of Iron can recruit the protégé. Mentorships are often more successful when the mentor initiates the invitation.
