This topic focuses on requirements for your role as a mentor, specifically:
- Introduction to mentees;

Topic: Mentoring Tools and Traps
This topic focuses on developing knowledge of how mentoring optimises human performance, specifically and the importance of the context in which mentoring is being applied:
- Establish relationship boundaries;
- Develop active listening skills as a mentor;
- Recognise conscious and unconscious bias, the risk of the ‘halo’ effect and focusing on being the best that you can be as a mentor.
