Can Mentoring as a Mutually Developmental Relationship Exist in Organizations?
Eggert, Katherine L.; Callahan, Jamie L.
Online Submission, Paper presented at the Academy of Human Resource Development International Research Conference in The Americas (Indianapolis, IN, Feb 2007).
Most literature portrays mentoring as a means to enhance or maintain organizational stability. Thus, mentoring is viewed as a mechanism to achieve organizational goals. From this perspective, HRD scholars may be ignoring an elementary aspect of mentoring - a deeply personal, developmental relationship between two individuals. This paper explores the reciprocal nature of mentoring as a means of achieving mutual emancipation with the possibility of diminishing impediments such relationships might encounter in organizations.
