Help mentees prepare for the mentoring relationship by giving them this preparation checklist prior to your first meeting.
This template will help mentees:
- Identify and define goals, values, work styles and habits, strengths and 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.
Asking mentees to complete the preparation checklist will help the first meeting be more efficient and effective, and set your mentoring relationship up for success.
