Mentorship tracking tool suggestions?

Krishan @krishan711

I've just about completed my first month of mentoring on MentorCruise 🎉

I've mentored a lot at work and had structured plans for progress that were managed on google sheets and docs. For my personal mentorships I would love to know if there's an easy tool to track conversations, progress, things to discuss in the next call (and so on) that me and my mentees could see and contribute too.

Any suggestions for something like this? or even templates you have used that have worked well?

    Hi! We have created a similar app where there are mentors - https://whipcake.com. You set a task, find a mentor, and within 7 days he motivates you to act. In my opinion, it looks very much. You can also motivate other people and be their mentor.

    Hi Krishan, could you please elaborate on this:

    " easy tool to track conversations, progress, things to discuss in the next call (and so on) that me and my mentees could see and contribute too."

    I'm working on something along these lines, but I would like to hear a bit more of how this should work. For instance, do you think a thread system will be a way to have tracked conversations?

    Thank you!

    I'd love to know how you are structuring this, I'm doing mentoring on Mentorcruise, would love to develop my processes better too.

    Notion or OneNote would be affordable solutions for this. They are both better than flat-file systems and let multiple users collaborate. Your ideal bet would be a relational database of some sort, but those can get pricey unless you roll your own and then it’s a time commitment.
