ACHE Webinar Series Sneak Peek: Mentor-Mentee Relationship Webinar on June 1

May 22, 2016 12:22 PM | Anonymous


ACHE is excited to collaborate with Kevin Schwenker of Schwenker & Associates to bring you the next installation of our 2016 Webinar Series on June 1. Kevin, a management consultant, will be presenting on a topic that has taken education organizations by storm—mentoring.

You’ve probably heard of mentoring and might have even considered using it in your organization. Often, however, there is confusion about what mentoring really means, what support it requires, and what kind of direction it needs to be successful. This session will teach you everything you didn’t realize you needed to know about mentoring and how to make it work for your institution. Attendees will leave with a greater understanding of the opportunities mentoring presents to educators and a firm understanding of its potential to be used as continuing education to your target markets.

For more information about the webinar and how to register, please visit the webinar event page. Members can also view resources from past ACHE webinars by visiting our Webinar Catalog.
