A Shopify interns insight to mentorship

Photo Source

My mentor and I were honest with each other.

My mentor was invested in me.

  1. What is on your mind? This prompted me to share blockers immediately instead of waiting for a weekly sync.
  2. What is your focus for today? This created alignment between my work and the rest of the team.
  3. What can I help you with today? Honestly, this was exactly what I needed to hear during difficult projects. Often, my mentor was able to direct me to the best Slack channel or the best person to answer questions.

My mentor provided options instead of answers.

They challenged me to be antifragile and to set stretch goals.
