IGI Mentoring Workshop

Mentoring for Geoscientists Workshop

Research shows that mentees not only climb the career ladder faster, but also they are more satisfied with their careers overall. What is not so well known is that mentoring also enhances the careers and job satisfaction of effective mentors. This interactive, group‐based workshop will provide guidance for geoscientists on becoming a mentor and/or mentee. You will try out basic mentoring skills and discuss strategies to manage the mentoring process and enable the best learning outcomes for mentees. Mentors will learn what is expected of them in today’s workplace while mentees can learn how the get the best from a mentor.

The IGI runs a free, voluntary mentorship scheme which is helping members’ career development within the CPD framework. This workshop, as well as participation in the mentorship scheme is eligible for CPD hours.

This course will be delivered by John Arthurs, a Chartered Geologist with over 50 years experience. For the past eight years John has been practicing professionally as a qualified executive coach with a special interest in helping geoscience professionals progress in their careers. John will be joined by Trudy Arthurs, a coach‐trainer with the Academy of Executive Coaching with 15 years of experience.
