Στο Women On Top πιστεύουμε στο mentoring και πιστεύουμε (πολύ!) στη δυνατότητα των μεντόρων μας να αλλάξουν προς το καλύτερο τη ζωή των mentees τους. Γι’ αυτό ξεκινάμε τη νέα ακαδημαϊκή χρονιά με μια νέα σειρά επιμορφωτικών σεμιναρίων γύρω από βασικά θέματα που σχετίζονται με τον ρόλο αυτόν, και που θα αυξήσουν σημαντικά την αποτελεσματικότητα της καθοδήγησης που μπορείς να προσφέρεις στις mentees σου, τις συνεργάτιδες στην ομάδα σου αλλά και σε όποια γυναίκα θέλεις να υποστηρίξεις για να φτάσει λίγο πιο εύκολα λίγο πιο μακριά!

At Women On Top we believe in mentoring and we believe (a lot!) in the ability of our mentors to change the lives of their mentees for the better. That is why we are starting the new academic year with a series of training seminars around key topics related to this role, which will significantly increase the effectiveness of the guidance you can offer to your mentees, your colleagues or any woman you want to support!

These are 4 two-hour webinars, which will help you learn more about the basic principles of mentoring, and practice skills such as trust and active listening, unconscious biases, goal setting and self-confidence, as well as other important tools that will also maximize your own broader professional development.

The first webinar of the mentor training cycle is about the basic principles of mentoring. Here we’ll explain exactly what effective mentoring is (and isn’t!) and share valuable tools that will make any mentoring partnership more productive as well as more enjoyable for both people involved. We’ll discuss the forms mentoring can take, good practices and what to avoid, and we’ll leave plenty of time for questions and sharing useful past experiences.
