Expanding Mentoring Help from SueMentors: A New Webinar

I enjoy the individual mentoring that I do for organizations and for personal clients. For several years, I’ve wanted to make mentoring help more widely available. Writing my blog was a start at that. But my mentor-mentee interactions have reinforced that mentees want – and need – real-time examples of advice that addresses their issues. So I am pleased to be partnering with my graduate alma mater, the Tulane University Office of Alumni Relations, to initiate a monthly Mentoring Help webinar, with the first webinar in May 2018. The 30-minute format will include 3 sections:          A brief review of the mentoring topic for the month          A case example of the mentoring topic with a mentee and mentor working through the mentee's issue in real time          SueMentor’s Question Time (aka answering questions submitted in advance of the webinar).

Guidance on Mentoring: What is Mentoring?

This brief guide focuses on defining different aspects of mentoring, whether for an individual or for a team, and includes selected reference resources. It is critical that the mentee and mentor both approach their interaction with the same understanding of the nature and scope of the advising that will be offered. This brief guide can serve as a reference for both parties in arriving at that mutual understanding. Before delving into mentoring, it ’s important to be aware that s ome times  the terms “mentoring” and “coaching” are used interchangeably  despite important differences between them . There are many resources on mentoring and coaching – and almost as many different definitions for each as well as the similarities and overlap between the two  (such as shown in the articles on coaching in the resource list below).   Also, m ost people agree that mentoring is NOT training although a mentor or coach may recommend that a mentee obtain additional training.
