Module 8A | Mentoring conversations

What are your limits and referral options as a mentor? How to listen as a mentor? How to help an emotional student? How to give ownership to the student?

Course description

Mentoring conversations can be challenging for different reasons. For example, what do you do when a student becomes emotional? Or when a student does not want to take responsibility? Or how do you make a conversation useful when everything goes well and there are no problems at all? This module will focus on communication techniques that will help you tackle all these types of difficulties.
