Sometimes before a remote mentoring session starts on Zoom or other video conferencing app, Fran Haasch, founding attorney at the Fran Haasch Law Group, will just idly chit chat and share random thoughts with her mentee. Sometimes, if she just doesn’t have a clue about what to say, she’ll try some team-building exercises that work online. She’ll even go so far as to set up casual Zoom lunches where she shares a meal and is able to talk about both work and non-work events in a more relaxed way.

Haasch isn’t being random about any of these ad hoc communications. No, instead she has a very specific goal in mind, which is to build trust with the mentee.
