The Rewards of Mentoring
Green-Powell, Patricia
Online Submission, US-China Education Review B 1 p99-106 2012
A growing body of knowledge exists which describes the rewards and importance of mentors in the professional development of young men and women, particularly with relation to their interactions in professional and organizational settings. Research in both educational settings and the workplace indicates that students and employees alike are more likely to succeed, if they have had a mentor. Mentoring programs are seen to bridge the gap between professional post-secondary programs and the independent exercise of professional roles, adopted in many organizations as a human resource strategy to improve personnel training at all organizational levels, from orientation of incoming personnel to more advanced preparation for those ascending higher levels of the organizational ladder. The purpose of this research is to discuss the many rewards of mentoring experiences to include not only the rewards to the mentor, but also the mentee/protege, and the organization, as well.
