Sponsored by the Office of Faculty Development (OFD); Instructor: David Yousem, M.D., M.B.A.

  • Scheduling of this session is TBA. Will be offered in the Spring of 2015.  

Do you feel like you are not getting enough out of your relationship with your mentor? Is your advancement to promotion not going as fast as you had hoped? Do you sometimes feel like your mentor’s advice is not tailored to your needs and skill sets?
An effective mentor-mentee relationship requires active participation by the mentee to get what he/she needs. In this session, you will learn how to draw the most from your mentor, how to ensure that your mentor is focused on your needs and provides the maximum support for your career advancement. You will be able to feel in command of your career with a strong support system that you create. The mentees rule! But first you have to learn some of the mentees’ rules for success.

How often do you say to yourself, “If only I had more time!” or “Where did the time go?” Are you behind on your big ticket projects? Do you look at others and ask “How do they get it done?” This course provides you with the skill set to create time in your day, remove extraneous baggage from your schedule and be much more productive per unit time. Based on lessons from Stephen Covey’s “Seven Habits”, Kerry Patterson’s “Change Anything”, and Brian Tracy’s “Eat that Frog”, the seminar will help you to create 5 extra hours of productive time in a week.


  • To learn how mission/vision thinking allow you to prioritize the time you spend at work and at home
  • To provide critical scheduling tips to make sure your major projects are attended to on a consistent daily basis
  • To coach you on establishing visual cues, advocates, and enforcers that help you stay on task and avoid procrastination
  • To teach you skills that allow you to focus more quickly as you move from project to project so as not to “lose time” in transitions. Contains content from Geno Schnell, Ph.D.
