Help mentees prepare for the mentoring relationship by giving them this preparation checklist prior to their first meeting. Use the Mentee Preparation Checklist to help mentees:
- Identify and define goals, values, work styles, habits, strengths, weaknesses, and knowledge and skill gaps.
- Know what topics and issues they should be prepared to discuss during the first meeting.
- Understand general expectations the mentor will have of them throughout the mentoring relationship.
Mentees will complete this checklist to think through their expectations and goals for the mentoring relationship.
