Mentoring Monday: Maintaining Effective Communication

How does your communication style impact how effective you are as a communicator and mentor?

During this workshop, postdocs will identify their communication style using the Effective Communication Styles Inventory, consider their communication style’s strengths and weaknesses, and learn how to communicate effectively across different styles.

Facilitators: Emily Jones and Samuel Montalvo, Postdoc Peer Mentoring Coaches

Mentoring Monday: Improve Communication by Assessing Understanding

Monday, November 13, 12:00pm - 1:00pm, On Campus

Have you communicated expectations to a mentee and assumed that they understood what you meant? Would you like to learn how to better communicate with your mentor/mentee?

Effective communication is critical to an effective mentoring relationship. During this workshop, postdocs will identify barriers to clear understanding. In addition, scholars will learn and practice strategies to address reasons for a lack of understanding.

Designing Your Postdoc

Your postdoc training is more than just research! Apply design thinking to the wicked problem of a comprehensive postdoctoral training plan and make a bold plan that amplifies your interests and values as you transition to your career of choice. The work we do together will support new perspectives, identify mentoring needs, and ensure that your individual development plan is thoughtful and balanced.

Note: there is approximately an hour of required prework for this session. You will receive details for the prework upon registration.
