GC: Managing Conflicts or Concerns in Mentor-Mentee


Feb. 9, 2022, 4pm to 5pm

Office/Remote Location



Conflict is the expression of a disagreement between people about what should be done or how it should be done. How conflict is handled can be destructive or constructive for a workplace, a relationship or a team. This is because the core element in conflicts is people and with people come with emotions. Communication along with emotional intelligence can positively or negatively influence how the conflict is resolved.  The ability to resolve issues in a professional manner are key to a healthy and productive mentor/advisor-mentee relationship. Join us for an interactive workshop where we unpack the roles and responsibilities of mentor and mentee relationships - and learn communication skills that will be key to successfully working through conflicts or concerns.
