In this course, mentors will learn key skills to connect with their mentees. This course is grounded in years of research, including a landmark meta-analysis of studies that identified effective practices for building strong helping relationships (Karver et al., 2018).
This course is appropriate for new and seasoned mentors. Remember – whatever your experience has been so far, you can learn and improve to better serve your mentee!
