What Topics do you Discuss with a Mentor?

“What are some topics to discuss with my mentor?”

A mentee had this question recently.

Keeping a mentor engaged and using their time wisely takes practice.

The mentee previously discussed the following with their mentor:

✅️ Current project
✅️ Career goals and path to the next level
✅️ Hot skills in the market
✅️ Mentor’s career path

But the mentee wasn’t sure what to discuss next.

They asked and got some additional suggestions:

✅️ Further education
✅️ Work / life balance
✅️ Future projects
✅️ Career lessons learned
✅️ How mentors helped the mentor


What else would you add to this list to discuss with a mentor? Let me know below.
