- Supervision- your discussions with the mentees are monitored to make sure that the directives expected are being met.

Mentoring – Session Flow
Each mentoring session vote necessary ate the completion of the following steps. While the structure is not required for all Mentoring sessions, it is definitely a great strategy to follow for an effective session. Mentors must make it a practice to adhere to these guidelines.
- Creating a rapport- Even if the mentors have interacted with their mentees before, it is a good way to spend the first few minutes indulging in a small talk so that mentees can open up. This is also a great strategy that allows mentors to evaluate the mentees’ mental state and, if necessary, initiate the conversation accordingly.
- Setting Agenda: Once mentors and mentees have established rapport, the mentors can move ahead to set the agenda for forthcoming conversation.
- Assist the mentee in setting goals
- Ensure accountability from mentees.
Any task assigned to the mentee should have some level of accountability on the mentees’ part. IT MUST HAVE.
Always remember to schedule the next meeting if you believe that it is necessary and when your mentor also agrees to it.
- Closure: Finish your mentoring session always on a positive note, because this is where your mentor begins to feel slightly better than at the beginning of the session.
