Getting to Know Each Other

Getting to Know Each Other

After your first meeting, and after completing your Mentoring Agreement, it's important to spend time just getting to know each other.

Have fun! Take the pressure off. Finding commonalities is the foundation for building a positive mentoring relationship.

Use the following activities in combination with other things you both enjoy doing. Or find something you've both never done that maybe you could explore together.
