Instruction and Feedback
This course reviews how to give instructions and feedback most effectively within the context of mentoring relationships. It also encourages mentors to consider the benefits of mentees taking responsibility for their own learning and development, thereby reducing the reliance on instruction and feedback from any third party.
During the course, you are observing the progress that Joe makes as he transitions from a mentoring role within the army to a position within corporate learning and development. Joe needs some support along the way but draws from his military training and experience to add a new dimension to the mentoring programme offered by his new employer.
