A Goal Without a Plan is a Just a Wish: Why and How to Align Mentoring Goals and Expectations
Mentoring relationships are often hampered by poor alignment of goals and expectations between mentor and mentee.  This session, aimed at both mentors and mentees, is designed to help you identify when a mentoring relationship could benefit from improved alignment of expectations. llearn about specific and practical tools for improving the productivity of your mentoring relationships through structured goal-setting processes. By the end of this session you will be able to:

      • Indicate what is meant by alignment in the mentoring relationship, and why it matters.
      • Use a simple Individual Development Plan (IDP) to make your mentoring relationships more productive.
