Mentor: Section 2: Keys to a Successful Mentoring Relationship

Unlike the other sections in this toolkit, Section 2 is written for the mentor and is not to be used with the mentees. The goal of this section is to prepare mentors for their journey with the mentees.

 Review Section 3: Overview/Getting Started for face-to-face discussion prior to leaving conference: Getting Started: First Meeting Guide and Setting Goals* — The intent of the first two meetings is to start building trust between the mentors and mentees, to determine clear expectations and to establish a plan for future meetings based on the mentees’ goals. Ideally, the mentees will start to develop general goals by the end of the second meeting.
