A scale is a visual tool, which allows a mentee to think about steps of change and helps their thinking become more specific, concrete and measurable. This is useful for identifying progress; goals and exploring their thinking and the meaning behind the thinking.
Finding out where the mentee is on a scale of 1-10. Then ask them ‘What tells you that you are at that point in the scale?’, as well as, ‘What will be happening when you are 1 point higher on the scale?’ or, ‘What does 10 look like?’. Get a really clear and concrete picture
You can draw out the scale to visually look at together. A pie chart is an alternative visual tool which can be similarly used.
