At all career stages, working with a mentor is a tried and tested way of developing and enhancing your career. Mentoring can also bring benefits for your confidence at work, both as a mentee and as a mentor - enabling you to navigate the demands of your role and develop the essential skills to support and empower junior colleagues and students. This short workshop focuses on the benefits of mentoring to you as a mentee or a mentor, and how to access them. This session is for anyone who would like to:
- Consider the value that mentoring conversations can bring for career development and set some development objectives (whatever your career aim or stage) for working with a mentor;
- Learn how to find, approach and work with a mentor productively;
- Discuss, critique and embed the skills of mentoring, gaining new ideas for working one to one with colleagues, that will also benefit you as a tutor and supervisor.
In order to tailor the value of attending for each participant, this will be a workshop format where participants are supported to engage with real mentoring conversations. You conversations in the workshop will remain confidential, and the tone of the workshop will be positive, non-judgemental, and future focused.
