Workshop Details
This is a workshop for mentors and senior mentees, whether this is your first formal mentoring assignment or something you have done and enjoyed for quite some time. The workshop will provide you with some key concepts and skills in leadership whether you’re mentoring or working with someone just starting out or someone with several years of experience. The goals of this workshop are to:

  • Provide you with concrete tools and frameworks to help in your mentoring work
  • Increase your capacity for leadership in your own job and career
  • Deepen your network with fellow professionals in the area

In this interactive workshop, you will learn some key concepts in the following areas:

  • The appropriate way to lead and mentor based on where your mentee (or employee or colleague at work) is in their own development
  • Hallmarks of a successful coaching conversation
  • Effective feedback delivery

You will also have the opportunity to learn from each other’s experience and apply the tools and frameworks to your own mentoring and work situations.
