1:1 Communication and Building Relationships. 

This synchronous workshop is part of the Mentorship Foundations training which prepares students to serve as a mentor or peer advisor in a peer support role. 1:1 Communication and Building Relationships will encourage mentors and advisors to practice active, empathetic and compassionate listening in their mentoring relationships. This workshop will also investigate transactional and transformational mentoring and the difference between giving advice versus sharing an experience. Students will have the opportunity to practice these techniques and exchange ideas throughout the workshop during various breakout room activities.
