Use of metaphors
Monday 10th February 2020 18.30- 19.30 Tutor: Dr Janine Brooks MBE
We all use metaphors as part of our everyday language and it reflects how we view the world and ourselves in it. Everyone has a unique take on life and situations and the metaphors we use can help us to increase our own self awareness and that of our mentees - we use them subconsciously. By listening to your coaching/mentoring clients and exploring the metaphors they use can really help us as coaches to explore their world.

Honey and Mumford - learning styles
Monday 10th June 2019 18.30 - 19.30 Tutor: Dr. Janine Brooks MBE
Peter Honey and Alan Mumford developed a model using four different learning styles or ways of learning – Activist, Reflector, Theorist and Pragmatist.
This tutorial aims to explore how learning styles of mentors and mentees can affect the mentoring relationship. Participants will be able to discuss how they can recognise the influence their own learning styles have on rapport with their mentees and techniques for developing their less preferred learning styles to deepen rapport and enhance communication.
At the end of the session participants will be more aware of their own learning styles and be more confident in providing developmental feedback to their mentees to move their thinking forward.

In our view this is an essential part of being a mentor. Supervision allows you to ‘download’ some of the issues that have arisen from the mentoring you provide to your mentees. It is a safe, confidential way to share and discuss strengths and areas you would like to improve upon. We offer group supervision several times a year.
