Our business backgroundElana Siew and Neale Roberts - the owners of Mentors - have run their own businesses for the last 20 years and have enabled, coached, rejuvenated and developed businesses since 1998. They're focused on getting people and systems to work together to achieve results. Since they founded Mentors, they've been refining their skills, knowledge, qualifications and competencies in the field.
Because Mentors has worked with many different types of companies, we've become experts in the research and development of
new business models.
We believe that businesses are made by refining the balance between people and processes so that objectives are met.
As a part of the process, we empower management teams to become self sufficient and we've managed to improve top line sales
by 20-30% and bottom line wealth by 10-15%.

Why we are business enablers and mentors
Business coaching focuses on promoting required behaviours and discouraging non-required behaviours. So our aim is to help you focus on what is important to you, your team and your business. We help you to discover these through our business enabling process, and we coach you and your team in the behaviours and thinking styles required to grow the business. Our enabling process achieves the following:• Discovers what is actually happening in the business
• Helps to define business objectives
• Works to achieve them
• Sets business targets and goals
• Guides key personnel towards results
• Ensures that deadlines are met
• Encourages individual and team performance
• Makes sure that each unit stays on track
• Assesses performance thereafter
Our philosophy and approach to business enablingMentors helps businesses to strengthen successful processes within the organisation and to identify potential areas for improvement. Our main objective is to enhance business performance by building a culture of accountability and growing a proactive workforce; however, our approach varies depending on what outcomes are required.
