Coaching and Mentoring Researchers
Are you involved in the coaching or mentoring of researchers in your department? Many people find themselves with this role – officially or, more often, unofficially. Often we feel unprepared, as if we are “making it up” as we go along. This workshop will provide a grounding in the essential skills and structures for effective coaching or mentoring. Being involved with the professional development of a colleague can be one of the more satisfying aspects of a research career and also provide you with valuable skills and insights to apply to your own career development.
This session will cover the following:
- the different roles of mentor and coach;
- the verbal and non-verbal skills needed to build rapport;
- how to use questions to elicit learning;
- how to structure a coaching session.
Coaching and mentoring skills can be used during supervision and this workshop, while very different, will complement skills learned during the separate Supervising Research Students workshop.
