Practice navigating the challenging conversations you might have with a mentor or advisor when pursuing your individual development plan in this online workshop. The thought of approaching a mentor to talk about topics in an Individual Development Plan—such as academic progress, research timeframe, authorship, professional goal prioritization, and career aspiration—can be nerve-wracking and stressful. This workshop will present strategies and techniques to help you prepare for these difficult conversations, and to make them more productive when you do have them.
