The SAME Virtual Student Chapter Presents:
Mentoring for Emerging Professionals: Finding Your Path
As you emerge from your studies into your chosen profession, your mentoring needs will change along with it. What should you look for in a mentor? What should you expect from the relationship? How can you best contribute to your own mentoring experiences? The author of the Guides to Army Mentoring series will answer these questions and more, along with providing concrete suggestions for taking your first steps in this realm.
Participants will understand:
- How is student mentoring different than workplace mentoring?
- Do I need a coach, a counselor, or a mentor?
- How mentoring relationships form, evolve, and end.
- Mechanisms for setting and refining expectations in a mentoring relationship.
- Identifying warning signs of a mentoring relationship gone bad
- Getting started with mentoring
