So many people forget to engage the brain, so what questions can you ask to "grab that brain as well"
- What are your career goals and how can I help you achieve them?
- What are your passions and how can we develop your role to engage those passions?
- What do you want from me as your mentor?
- How can I get the best from you?
- What values are important to you?
This is in no way a full list but a start....the main point is to follow up on what you find out, and to review regularly.
