This course is a great beginning point for anyone who wants to establish a mentoring relationship, either as a mentor or a mentee. Students will learn how a mentoring relationship can benefit not only the mentor and mentee, but the organization as well. Understanding the mentoring process, steps on finding a mentor, building relationships, and setting goals, are only some of the topics covered in this course. This course includes an e-book of the Mentoring 101 Learner Workbook, which contains thought provoking exercises that are an integral part of successfully completing the course. This workbook supplements the online course by engaging students with the exercises that are both personal and relevant, and can be utilized immediately to guide the student in creating a mentoring relationship, or getting the most out of the mentoring relationship they currently have.
To nurture communication of ideas and opinions across teams, an optional group discussion guide is provided.
