Mentorships are one of those unspoken yet critical components to getting ahead in your career. Not only does being a mentee provide invaluable benefits to new employees, with things like learning the ins and outs of workplace culture, among others – it certainly has advantages for more seasoned employees, too, setting them up for promotions and a deeper understanding of their fields. No doubt, mentorships are an incredible resource to tap into for any challenge or general insight. No one is too old (or too above!) having a mentor – even mentees!
To get the most out of your mentorship sessions, Inc.com outlined three key topics to cover at every one. We’ve listed out the Coles Notes here:
- Always end your sessions with key action items – and then review them at the beginning of your next one.
- Address any issues or challenges that currently exist – and brainstorm the best solutions together.
- Rinse and repeat.
That’s it! Simple and effective ways to fully harness these precious meetings.
