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.
A maximum of 10 delegates. Free for DMUK Members 

Members Forum

This is for directory members only and you can use it to ask questions or raise queries. Discussions with other mentors are an important part of support.

Training

Many mentors have already trained in mentoring skills.

The qualification is awarded by the Chartered Institute of Management and provided by the Dental Coaching Academy. Please click here to learn more. (link to DCA brochure)

Supervision

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.
