Perspectives on Mentoring

Mentoring is an important aspect of professional development and talent management efforts in a wide variety of fields such as education, business, engineering, and business. Mentoring entails forming a mutually supportive and learning relationship between the more experienced (mentor) and less experienced (protégé) colleagues for the purposes of personal support and professional learning. There is an increased interest in the topic of mentoring in the workplace on a global scale. Research indicates that those who receive mentoring rise faster in their organizations and have more success in their careers than those who do not have this experience. This series will focus on various aspects of the mentoring process in a variety of organizational settings and contexts.

IAP and International Mentoring Association have partnered for this series, with the joint aim to share practices and research with the global community for the development and enhancement of mentoring programs and relationships across disciplines and contexts.
