My best mentees are those who take notes - immediately implement and execute - and then give feedback.
The tighter the feedback loop, the better.
I encourage action-taking. And I tell you the truth (sometimes it's not what you want to hear).
The mentor then learns as much as the mentee and they both become more accountable.
The mentor becomes more invested.
It’s a two way relationship - we all want to learn & grow in some capacity.
