I am currently working on a development program for mentors and mentees for a large consulting firm.

During a session, one of the mentees mentioned that her mentor is never fully present when they meet. He is often distracted on his phone or sending out emails. Of course, we can all identify with being busy and overwhelmed at times however the impact in this situation is that the mentee feels disregarded and uncared for. She feels disengaged and it raises a question of efficacy with the whole project.

How are you being present and mindful? Are you aware of the impact it can have on your teams and co-workers?
