Becoming Better Mentors through a Coaching Approach

This workshop invites faculty who are involved in formal or informal mentoring of their colleagues to review their mentoring experiences and explore additional ways to interact with their mentoring partners. Workshop facilitators will lead a discussion of the coaching approach to mentoring, which takes as its starting point a mentee-driven agenda, focuses on mentor questioning instead of telling, and helps mentees identify actions to be taken in order to achieve their goals.

Participants will make progress towards:

  • Creating a community of mentors at JMU, and
  • Expanding their repertoire of mentoring approaches.
