Effective mentoring has long been recognized as important for success in professional and academic environments. Mentors are often assigned to persons entering a new academic or professional environment, but are seldom provided the training to ensure that the mentoring relationship will be most beneficial to the protégé and to the mentor. This interactive workshop will discuss strategies for effective mentoring of today’s students, and will contrast the behaviors of masterful vs. misguided mentors. Additionally, techniques for producing proactive vs. problematic protégés will be discussed. The discussion will help mentors at all levels become more effective at guiding protégés to success.
