Being a mentor comes with a responsibility to share advice that may positively influence your mentee. Oftentimes, mentees look to their mentors during moments of high stress and high anxiety. How do you help your mentees stay productive while encouraging long-term sustainable work habits? How do you adapt your mentorship style to each unique mentee? How do you ensure your own implicit bias does not affect your ability to mentor others?  This workshop will cover practical tips you can use to support your mentees, with an emphasis on reflective listening, acknowledging biases, managing time, strategies for stress relief, and building healthy habits. By participating in this workshop you will:

  • Learn the research behind changing or cultivating healthy habits
  • Discover tools and tips you can use to support mentees’ stress and time management skills
  • Increase awareness of the negative impact of contradictory advice and/or examples
  • Learn/review UNLV health and wellness resources to which mentees can be referred
