How often do you recommend meeting your mentors/mentees and also do they need to be sharing the same discipline?
Christopher Gee
50:07
Specifics for the Mentoring on AIAA, do you have any tips on sifting through the mentee applicants? I want to help a lot of people but have had to limit to 3 mentees in 6month sessions.

Monica, that is a great approach.
Julia Schonert
01:24:48
Are there only technical or engineering mentors or do the mentors fall in many fields within Aerospace?
Thomas Robbins
01:29:01
Sometimes, the mentee exhausts the knowledge of the mentor
Allen Arrington
01:32:56
Carlos, I use the "let's take a walk" approach as well with my engineers at work. Very effective.
Luci Blodgett
01:33:51
I love that!
Thomas Robbins
01:37:27
Is it OK to remind the mentee that my answers are my opinion, and are NOT absolute knowledge?
Ragini Acharya
01:38:26
@Thomas Robbins, absolutely.
monique Alabi
01:38:46
Yes! that has been fixed.
Robert Love
01:39:02
That mentee interface/mark relationship complete has messed me up once as well.
Allen Arrington
01:41:05
Is it just me or does "mentee" seem like an odd word? How about we use Padawan?
Daniel Dumbacher
01:41:48
Go for it Allen! I agree with the word being odd.
Luci Blodgett
01:46:04
"I wonder if doing XYZ or ABC would work better?" instead of simply telling someone what to do. (While offering examples as well!)
Matt Cannella
01:46:09
Unfortunately I have to drop for another meeting. Thanks for this session! I enjoyed the discussion and learned a lot.
Luci Blodgett
01:47:16
Thank you Matt! Will send out the recording on Monday!
