The University of Toronto Centre for Faculty Development, New and Emerging Academic Leaders (NEAL) Program is accepting applications for the 2014-2015 class!
Academic leaders are often promoted into roles based on their academic expertise with little, if any, leadership development. The NEAL program is specifically designed to fill that gap. They are inviting applications from individuals, both nationally and internationally, with faculty appointments in Faculties of Medicine or Health Sciences who have academic leadership roles and/or responsibilities. For more information review their brochure: http://www.cfd.med.utoronto.ca/programs/NEAL_Brochure7.pdf The deadline is April 22, 2014 (for early bird tuition rate) and June 2, 2014 (final deadline).

MENTORING IN A MINUTE: Tips to enrich any mentoring relationship!
Establish preferred methods of communication at outset of relationship (email, phone, face-to-face, Skype, etc). Be specific but flexible. If a 20 minute phone chat works for your Mentee/Mentor, then don't feel obliged to always wait for face to face time.
