It is important for the Center to provide basic training in mentoring or advising capacity. Faculty and colleagues should be equipped with some knowledge and skills which can be applied in the mentoring situations in the following areas:
  • Enhance listening and communication skills
  • Enhance awareness of others’ emotions and empathy
  • Understanding own strengths, potentials, and capabilities to use in relevant mentoring/advising environments
  • Build a trusting relationship with students

I recently had the pleasure of attending an outing event with my colleagues to make mosaic art lamps, and I have to say, it was an incredible experience. The event was very well organized, and it provided the perfect opportunity for us to connect outside of work while also learning about Turkish culture. The laid-back atmosphere made it easy to unwind and enjoy ourselves, and it was a fantastic way to celebrate the end of the semester. Overall, I would highly recommend this outing to anyone looking for a fun, educational, and engaging activity to do with colleagues or friends.

It was a fabulous afternoon with colleagues in this Christmas Wreath Workshop. When we stepped into the room, the fresh pine scent and cozy ambience were inviting and relaxing. It’s not often that I get the chance to spend a couple of hours doing something creative in such nice surroundings. The preparation and detailed instructions from Bonart were wonderful. Thank you for organizing such an enjoyable experience and now we have beautiful festive decorations in the office for this Christmas!

I very much enjoyed the indoor climbing workshop organiZed by the Karen Lee Mentoring Centre. The training allowed me to step out of my comfort zone and try something that I would not have done on my own. We were a cooperative, positive-minded group. Everyone supported and encouraged everyone else. I'm very glad to have colleagues like these. Special shout-out to Lynn Pi who was my partner in the final challenge!

Through the Outdoor Bound workshop, I discovered that you can accomplish more while working as a team. With more communication amongst each other, our team was able to effectively solve many obstacles together. The workshop provided an opportunity to go outside my comfort zone and I look forward to future training sessions.
