Taught by Bonnie Faye Gibson-Brydon
Workshop synopsis: Questions a mentor might ask: How does intention and inquiry enhance the message being interpreted? As we look through the magnifying glass at the quality of our professional interpreting work, what do you see? What is your intention as you listen and process the message? How does inquiry build confidence and enhance the clarity of the message? Do you have a game plan as a Mentor? Are you a ‘mentee’, however have a group that want to work together? The call is now! The available workshops, many excellent, are non-stop. How are you retaining the information? What is your practice to integrate the information into your work? How do you turn free resources into Mentoring opportunities? And then, how do you pay it back??
