A304MC Pass it on – Mentoring session 1
Today we had our first mentoring session. It went really well and we managed to stick to the plan which was straight forward and enjoyable for all. The ice breaker I think worked really well as I came away knowing every single persons name which has given me a boost in confidence to pick someone out if no one volunteers or to say their name aloud and ask if they need help. We worked really well as a team and communicated with each other extremely well and split ourselves equally so that there is two in the gallery and two in the studio, giving the mentees a fair chance at learning both if they have the same support.
We have also managed to pick out the loud from the quiet ones and will be monitoring this so that we can help bring the quieter ones out of their shell, and splitting up the louder ones if necessary. We had a feedback session at the end where they told us how they had really enjoyed it and I had a guy come to me and say a really heartfelt thank you as he’s really enjoying this chance to learn the T.V studio.
I think next week will go just as well if not better as everyone will be a little more relaxed and already have a feel for things.
