First Meeting

Before beginning the mentoring relationship, you may both benefit from a ‘coffee & chemistry’ get-together. This provides an opportunity to get to know the other person a little more & for the mentee to discuss their goals.


Suggestions for your first meeting:

  • Find out a little bit more about each other
  • Clarify expectations & goals
  • How often you will meet approx. & where
  • Boundaries – what is in & out
  • Agree on confidentiality
  • In between informal contact? yes/no/if necessary
  • Set date for next meeting
  • Outline draft agenda for next meeting
