Location: Zoom


Good communication is a key element of any relationship and a mentoring relationship is no exception. It is critical that mentors and mentees seek to understand their own and the other’s communication styles and agree on the preferred modes, frequency, and relative responsibilities for communication. During this workshop, we will use evidence-based methods to help participants develop skills to maximize the effectiveness of their mentoring relationships. Trainees will utilize case studies and small-group discussions to build a key mentoring competency, effective communication.

Mentees will have the knowledge and skills to:

  1. Communicate effectively across diverse dimensions including varied backgrounds, disciplines, ethnicities, positions of power, etc.
  2. Accept and use constructive feedback. 
  3. Identify different communication styles/ approaches. 
  4. Use multiple strategies for improving communication (in person, at a distance, across multiple mentors, and within proper personal boundaries).
