Use the following questions to guide your Introductory Meeting conversation, which will help you get to know one another and establish mutual expectations and goals. Personal and Professional Background : • What is your educational and professional background (including an explanation of your current role and how long you have been with the organization) ? • What are your greatest strengths? Greatest weaknesses? • What are your short - term career goals? Long - term career goals? • What are your hobbies/interests outside of work? Expectations : • What do you see as my role as your mentor? • What ground rules should we set (e.g., confidentiality, openness, candor)? • What topics are off limits (e.g., performance reviews, personal lives)? • What do you think will be challenging about this relationship? • Are there any topics of urgent interests? • What topics do you want to cover in our conversations? • What do you hope to gain from this relationship? • How do you prefer to communicate between meetings? • When is the best time for you to meet on a regular basis?
