The Effect of Mentor Intervention Style in Novice Entrepreneur Mentoring Relationships
St-Jean, Etienne; Audet, Josee
Mentoring & Tutoring: Partnership in Learning, v21 n1 p96-119 2013
In this study, we aimed to determine whether mentor intervention styles influence benefits gained by novice entrepreneurs through their mentoring relationship. An empirical study conducted with 360 mentees who had received mentoring services shows that an intervention style which combines a maieutic approach with mentor involvement produced the best results. This style made it possible for the mentor to play a more decisive role with the mentee and also fostered the development of certain mentee outcomes. Mentoring program directors can make their mentors aware of the importance of their mentoring style to maximize outcomes for novice entrepreneurs. (Contains 4 tables, 1 figure, and 4 notes.)
