Sample Agenda for Mentor - Protégé Meetings

The agenda for the meeting is created by the Protégé and emailed to the mentor at least 2 days before the meeting so that the mentor has time to review the agenda and prepare effectively for the meeting.

The agenda is an opportunity for the Protégé to think clearly and organize their thoughts into priority sequence and budget their time accordingly. Visualize how you want the meeting to progress and how much time each topic should take. This may present a challenge at first but you will get better as you become more familiar with the process.

Here's a simple sample agenda:
