The week before the program participants will be asked to complete a brief survey (online) to provide:

  • a short statement about your history in mentoring experiences or absence of mentoring support;
  • a self-assessment on self-efficacy and confidence;
  • information about desired skills to acquire, general goals you have for your participation in the course and anticipated outcomes.

This workshop is for individuals looking to become independent and strong leaders in the organization through mentoring practice as a mentee. Not all mentors are created equal and it becomes inherent as the mentee to learn skill development, effective communication and networking, problem-solving, and high quality relationships.

At the end of this workshop you will be able to:

  • Identify how to ensure your efforts as a mentee foster the three characteristics of high quality relationships.
  • Recognize and reduce the sources of mentorship dysfunction.
  • Analyze the ethical responsibilities for mentees.
  • Learn two techniques to promote learning conversations and reflection.
  • Enhance your skills as a mentee to become a stronger leader during the mentoring practice;
  • Contribute to a culture of mentoring in your organization through active participation;
  • Learn about research-based evidence of strategies shown to work;
  • Reflect on and improve upon your role as a mentee in the mentoring practice; and
  • Enhance your ability to maximize personal and organizational outcomes during the mentoring practice;
  • Opportunity to meet like-minded people at the reception provided by tekMountain.

Participants are looking to develop an effective mentoring network and to maximize high quality relationships. Participants might be in a formal mentoring program or have informally identified (or wish to) their own mentors.
