Mentoring is a dynamic reciprocal relationship in a work environment between an advanced career incumbent (mentor) and a less experienced professional (protégé) aimed at promoting the development and fulfillment of both (Healy 1990). All of us have likely served as both a mentee and a mentor at various times in our careers. Effective mentoring is identified as one of several determinants of success in an academic research environment. Effective mentors are not born that way. Effective mentoring consists of a set of skills that can be learned. Using materials from a proven effective curriculum in mentor training, this webinar will review some of the essential skills of effective mentors and introduce participants to resources that they can use to improve their research mentoring.
Learn to identify different communication styles, including their own, and how to adapt their style to meet the needs of their mentee.
Learn how to effectively establish expectations for a mentoring relationship and to clearly communicate those expectations.
Identify web-based resources to enhance their mentoring practice.
