what does "mapping assignment."mean? Figure out your boss’s agenda. While this may sound counterintuitive at first, be wary of buying into your boss’s agenda hook, line, and sinker. Of course, you will want to be supportive and dedicate yourself to the team’s projects. But understand that no one’s interests will be fully aligned with yours—not even your boss’s. Their agenda may be deeply at odds with what you are trying to accomplish in your position and in your career. During the hiring process, everyone puts on the team smile, but it will take time to understand where your boss really stands and what his or her true plans are. Advance cautiously, and include your boss in your mapping assignment.

Hahaha, this is a very good bit of advice. Your career is YOUR career, and you need to think about your own goals. In the text, "mapping assignment" means when you plan your future in the company (promotions, transfers, projects etc.) be aware that your boss also has personal goals, and try to determine what the bosses goals are, and if they are compatible with your own.
