If you've ever wanted a mentor to guide you - we've got you covered so you don't have to go it alone. NAVIGATE teams you up with industry mentors (called Trailblazers) who are eager to share their knowledge with you about running a successful landscape or lawn care business.

The NAVIGATE Coaching Experience

What makes the NAVIGATE experience unique? You'll be matched with a Trailblazer coach (from a non-competing market). They'll share with you their operations, customer service strategies, business plans, and more. You'll get advice that you can use immediately to help improve your operations. The traditional NAVIGATE experience involves a full day, in-person meeting at the Trailblazer's facility. Or, you can meet with your mentor virtually if travel isn't in the cards. We also have a speed version of NAVIGATE if you want a quick 1-2 hour coaching session.

What People Are Saying...

The Trailblazer Mentoring Program is one of NALP’s most valuable member benefits. I’ve participated as a mentee and a mentor, and it’s rewarding no matter which role you’re playing. I learned so much from my Trailblazer, Rod Bailey, and I’ve had the opportunity to pass it along to my mentees as they’ve toured my company or when I’ve visited theirs. What a great way to share and to improve the industry we all love."
