This one day workshop helps participants share, develop and adapt their strengths, skills and tools for mentoring in cross cultural settings. This includes situations where the participants in mentoring have different cultural values and patterns or are working on strategies for working across cultures.

Through participatory, interactive exercises the workshop will explore practical mentoring. Trainers will model mentoring approaches.

The workshop can be attended as a stand-alone activity or as part of a mentoring program where we support you to apply learning from one of our training workshops such as Working Well Overseas or Working across Cultures.
