For November, the challenges will center around the theme of Giving Thanks. So far in November you’ve been challenged to write notes of appreciation, say “thank you,” shout-out your gratitude and to let your mentee know you’re grateful for them. This week’s challenge is to work with your mentee to become the person that someone else is thankful for. Who do you and your mentee have in your lives that you can identify as someone who could use your help, love or support? Once you have identified them, figure out what specific need they have and then make a plan to fulfill it, thereby being the person someone is thankful for!
Open and honest communication are keys to strong relationships. Be sure to set up a communication plan with your mentee – figure out if you will text, call, e-mail or use other social media channels to keep in touch. Determine what is the best day of the week and/or time to reach each other. Once your communication plan is set, be sure to stick to it and let each other know if anything changes or if you feel it’s not working for one of you.
There are lots of indoor and outdoor activities to do around Madison during the colder months.
Museums are a great way to spend time together – check out all the different free museums around town!
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
