For November, the challenges will center around the theme of Giving Thanks. This week’s challenge is to practice saying “Thank You!” Here are a couple of different ways you could do this:
1) Take your mentee on an outing and plan to thank anyone who helps you in some way (serves you coffee or ice cream or food, clears your table, holds a door open, takes your movie ticket, drives the bus, etc.)
2) Make a plan for you and your mentee to keep track of how many times you thank someone in a week. The next time you meet, compare your numbers and share stories of who you thanked!
3) Thank your mentee for being who they are and for sharing themselves with you!
As you’re engaging with your mentee, be sure to talk, listen, share and learn together!

Talking about bias and inclusion isn’t always easy but, sometimes, a little inspiration can help. Check-out this video, created by Love Has No Labels, to see if it sparks any questions or discussion.
We love seeing photos of you and your mentee spending time together! Please share them with us via your coach or using the hashtag #intentionalmentoringmadison
