Mentoring as a Two-Way Street – Dragonfly Mental Health

7 November 2022 @ 13:30 - 15:00

Many potential mentors and mentees believe that mentoring is solely about the mentor providing advice about the mentee’s professional development.  High quality relational mentoring has the potential to be bidirectional (enhancing the development of both the mentor and mentee) and transformational (impacting how the mentor and mentee think about not just their current job, but their careers, their vocations, and their lives). “Mentoring as a Two-Way Street” is a seminar and facilitated discussion which includes a description of high quality mentoring and all the ways it has the potential to be a two-way street.

In addition, in this seminar we cover approaches to maximize the probability of a high quality relationship, as well as offers insights and encourage discussion on what steps can be taken to operationalize mentoring relationships.

  • Topics discussed:
    • Description of high quality mentoring
    • The potential for mentoring to be a two-way street

    • Specific steps in operationalizing mentoring relationships
