Hello everyone! A piece of advice that I would give to mentees going through the 1x1 mentoring is to be comfortable exploring/inquiring about topics outside of the recorded session topics for that week as well. In my first meeting with my Level 2 mentor, we laid out the areas of development in my professional career that I wanted to discuss, learn more about, etc. For example, my mentor was in a leadership/managing role in her career, so I was really interested in learning strategies for managing large teams of people, because of my role as captain and president of my university rugby team. We organized a schedule so that at each meeting we delved into a different topic that I wanted to learn more about, and I found that it was really helpful to have that conversation to make the most of our sessions.
