BRINGING OUT THEIR BEST:
A ONE-DAY COURSE ON MENTORING
January 25 & 26, 2024 | Palo Alto, California
Mentorship Training Course taught by award-winning professors Dr. Thomas S. Mullaney (Stanford) and Dr. Christopher Rea (UBC).
WHAT THIS COURSE COVERS
This intensive, one-day, in-person mentoring workshop equips participants with effective, immediately applicable techniques for empowering their mentees and colleagues to become more centered, self-reliant, and successful.
Drawing on Mullaney and Rea’s book Where Research Begins—already translated into 5 languages and adopted by over 100 institutions worldwide—the workshop will focus on scenarios such as helping mentees who:
- have difficulty choosing a focus for their project
- unsure how to proceed with a project prompt or assignment
- feel intimidated by or unqualified to develop and carry out a project
- worry that they are asking the wrong questions about their project topic
- want to become better collaborators
- want to learn new ways to think about how to build and execute projects
By learning a series of mentoring techniques, participants will enhance their repertoire of skills for helping colleagues, coworkers, and mentees to make key decisions in building and carrying out a new project.
Target outcomes include:
- Helping mentees realize their individual potential
- Fostering inclusion and teamwork in research, arts, and business communities
- Reducing disengagement and burnout
- Strengthening professional networks for sharing mentoring best practices
