Advanced EM Workshops
Mentoring is considered a fundamental element of a career in academics and has been linked to better job satisfaction and greater productivity. Mentoring relationships offer much in terms of personal and professional development for mentors as well as for mentees. Those that have a framework for the mentoring process and strategies for facilitating a mentoring conversation are more likely to be effective and enjoy their role. However, while faculty at all stages of their careers will both have a mentor and be a mentee, the relationship is fraught with potential pitfalls, and there is no standard practice for establishing symbiotic mentoring relationships. This workshop will focus on strategies for building and optimizing the mentor-mentee relationship and on providing mentees with the tools they need to be proactive, take ownership, and drive the relationship. There will also be a dedicated segment on how to reach younger, tech-savvy colleagues.
