Individual Development Plan Discussion
In Topic 3, you completed an outline for your Individual Development Plan. At this point, you will select two activities to implement with your mentee. The two activities can be related to the same discipline or you can try and introduce separate activities that work on separate areas of growth. For example, if your mentee is working in listening skills, you can have the mentee create a written description of personal experiences with listening over the past few weeks. This would allow you to use techniques to redirect the mentee’s listening behavior during certain experiences. In addition, you could task the mentee with the opportunity to engage in a listening activity with another coworker or friend. This scenario could utilize some of the techniques you provided based on results from the first activity. Or, you can develop an activity for listening and an activity for communicating with others. You need to evaluate your current mentoring experience and create activities that will benefit your learning experience and your mentee’s mentoring experience. You will have the next 2 weeks to complete this portion of your assignment. The activity can be a written requirement, physical requirement, or an activity that initiates a behavioral change over a predetermined timeframe. As your mentee is working through the activity, monitor the progress and utilize any coaching or mentoring techniques necessary to guide your mentee to be successful. You must spend a minimum of 3 hours monitoring and working with your mentee for each activity. If you are in a location that prevents conducting the activity face-to-face, please use technology or additional resources to ensure you are providing a positive coaching and mentoring experience for your mentee.
Complete a 250-500 word reflection on the information you have obtained through the monitoring process. This could consist of a performance indicator chart along with a brief explanation of the current status in the coaching/mentoring process. You are only required to submit your reflection at this time.
APA format is not required, but solid academic writing is expected.
