Potential Topics for This Week's Mentor Office Hours

Calling all mentors, mentees, and fellows!

We had a great conversation a couple of weeks ago about some of the foundations for a successful mentorship experience for all involved.

Since then, a few people have reached out with interest in diving into some more topics and/skills. If there’s a particular mentorship topic you’d like to dig into this week, please let me know by taking this poll:

  • Effective communication & feedback
  • Structured v. unstructured mentorship
  • Ways to assess progress
  • Identifying goals & current reality

If there’s a topic that interests you that isn’t reflected in the poll, please share in this thread!
