Mentoring Skills for Montessori Leaders

Registrations closed

Mentoring can be a stimulating journey of self-discovery and development which provides opportunities for personal fulfilment and achievement. It is a fundamental form of human development where one person invests time, energy and personal know-how assisting the growth and ability of another person. This has a positive impact on improving student learning outcomes and assists the school or centre with human resource challenges. 

The session will cover: 

  • Types of mentoring relationships
  • Communication skills – giving and receiving feedback in particular 
  • Dealing with challenging workplace situations/people
  • Staff appraisals/evaluation – some methodologies 

Participant outcomes: 

  • Understand the benefits of cultivating mentoring in your school or centre 
  • Learn to develop and manage an effective employee mentoring programme 
  • Connect with other Montessori educators and school leaders considering workplace mentoring as a way of addressing human resource challenges

Research indicates that educators who are supported in their workplace through mentoring and coaching feel secure, confident and motivated. Mentoring is an art form that requires practice, typically by role-playing real life Montessori school scenarios in a safe environment with guidance from an experienced coach. There is no doubt that role plays are effective and that they are best practised in person to gain hands-on and effective learning opportunities. The workshop will be interactive, fun and guaranteed to give you skills you can take away and continue to practice in your school or centre.
