BEFORE THE SESSION:
Keep an eye out on session requests via your email
Read the mentees’ learning objectives and profile
Jot down important notes that you want to share regarding the topic
DURING THE SESSION:
Get to know your mentee – they might be nervous!
Share relevant experience & insights to the topic, but always go back to the mentee
Utilize the Task List feature
AFTER THE SESSION:
Submit a rating and share any additional feedback
You can check their progress – “My activity” page
Drop them a chat to check in
Break the ice, and get the conversation flowing!
Listen to your mentee as they share their goals and issues
Ask questions that help generate deeper insight for your mentee
Mentees want to know they're not along in their journey, share your own experiences!
Together with your mentee, set actionable next steps that they can carry through with
and before you go,
here are 3 GOLDEN RULES
Respect: Be on time & use appropriate language
Confidentiality: Keep personal information safe
Accountability: If you can’t make it to a session, request to reschedule & drop them a chat
