Mentorship: Efficient and Effective Practices (Webinar)

Tuesday, July 19, 2022
2:00 pm to 3:00 pm

The pandemic has clarified the value of time, the importance of connecting, and the demands of our job. One task that intersects these three realizations is mentoring. Mentorship is often uncompensated and undervalued; it is also an easy task to be cut when our plates are full. Most professionals are interested in mentorship -- to help others and to create a sense of purpose. But can we do this meaningfully with limited time, energy, knowledge? In this lecture, you will learn how to mentor efficiently. You will learn to protect yourself before and while you help others. You will learn that by implementing deliberate strategies, you become more engaged with your job. As a byproduct of the lecture, you will also learn how to become a better mentee as well. This lecture will review some data, some theories, some anecdotes. But it will otherwise be largely strategic.
