What are the mentees/proteges goals for the mentoring process
What are each of your roles and responsibilities?
How will you measure success?
What will you do if things go off the rails?
What are your preferences around meeting times?
What will you do, and what is acceptable if you have to reschedule meetings?
Also, take a few minutes to potentially map out the focus areas of each mentoring conversation. What are the focus areas you want to look at? I would say from reviewing hundreds of end of mentoring process feedback summaries that people would have preferred to create more structure rather than less throughout their mentoring process.
What will help you prepare for each mentoring touchpoint?
What other areas might you want to be in dialogue about?
