Today they are continuing the discussion in their first meeting, talking about when and how often they would like to meet. After supporting hundreds of mentoring partnerships over the last decade I continue to be amazed that when issues crop up it's often around the smaller items like when and where people are going to meet.
It's a good practice to talk abut what is going to work best, and what won't, in the first meting.
For a listing of other things to cover during the first mentoring meeting, read this post (Teams365 #575 - 8 Focus Areas for Your First Mentoring Meeting).
If you are starting a mentoring partnership soon, take a few moments to make a list of what you want to make sure you cover.
