What is Angel House?

Angel House is a marketplace the connects mentees seeking wisdom and mentors sharing experiences. We provide matches based on aligned intentions.

How do I sign up?

Mentees and mentors complete a brief survey on their behavioural goals and values.

Mentees are matched with mentors based on aligned goals and experiences.

How does the matching process work?

Angel House will propose a mentors for the mentee to then proactively reach out to.

As a mentee, this means after sign-up, you’ll be provided with a mentor matches to contact. As a mentor, this means after sign-up, you may be contacted by a mentee (only if there’s the right match). The mentor commits to 1 meeting if contacted before agreeing to the match. There is no obligation here. If it’s not a match, reach back out to Angel House and we’ll reassess.

Once I’ve signed up, what are the touch points with Angel House ?

Once you sign-up, a representative from Angel House will reach out for an initial 15 minute introductory zoom. The purpose here is to answer any questions and help shape the cadence and agenda for any future mentor/mentee relationships. Ultimately, the power lies with you, but Angel House is here to support with the tools.

At the end of the initial cadence (typically 8 weeks from initial match) a survey will be sent out for your feedback and next steps (either new relationships, or to assess the effectiveness of the current relationship).

Is there a curriculum for mentoring?

The nature of the mentoring and the course of the relationship (once paired) is entirely up to the mentor and mentee. That said, we do recommend some guardrails for the relationship (see below).

What is the typical length of a mentoring relationship?

We typically recommend 8 sessions, over 8 weeks to 4 months.

What are some guardrails for the relationship?

While halo doesn’t enforce how the community of angels interacts outside of Angel House, there are some guardrails we recommend to get the most out of the relationship:

  1. Cadence: 8 sessions over no more than 4 months, for 45minutes

  2. Content: question led, with the mentee proposing 3 open questions on a theme each session. Session themes could align to the intentions for the mentoring relationship.

  3. Intention-led: The focus is on aligning behaviours to manifest our intentions, not executing against hard goals to achieve discrete outcomes. This means mentors/mentees are encouraged to focus on input themes and intentions, vs output binary outcomes. Themes may include building aligned values, defining core behaviours, and habitualising value-driving actions. A goal may therefore be "manifest love", "restore balance", "empower my team" rather than "find a partner", "lose 5 kgs" or "get promoted".

  4. Accountability: The mentee is the driver of the relationship. Once they have received the shortlist of mentor matches, they make the first move. They also drive the agenda for each conversation and are responsible for establishing the cadence.

  5. Feasibility: Mentors are recommended not to exceed 2 mentees at any time, on the basis that they can then focus a weekly effort with each mentee. Mentees are capped at 1 mentor per 8 session cadence, to internalise and action the mentor relationship.

Who is responsible for making the first move?

The mentee must drive the relationship and the discourse. The mentor is there as a steward for the mentee, so the mentee will be the one to make the first move.
