Create an agenda
Getting to know each other Logistics Goals and expectations Concerns that might interfere with our meeting together Initial impressions Questions I have about you Why I think I can be a worthy mentor

Listen deeply and ask powerful questions

In-depth listening

Asking powerful questions

Suspending judgment Listening for understanding Providing an accepting and supportive atmosphere

Challenging in a friendly way Help the other person to talk about what is important to them

Plan for the next meeting
Mutually develop the agenda Ideas about what you might want to discuss Impressions on how this meeting went

Maintain and respect privacy, honesty, and integrity

I can't offer confidentiality in the legal sense, but I can do the best I can to ensure that "what is said in this room stays in this room."

It is in our interest to make the Mentoring Service work for you and your mentees. If you have any suggestions on how to improve the Mentoring Service, feedback is always welcome, and we’d be delighted to hear from you. Thank you.
