Ghislieri, Chiara; Gatti, Paola; Quaglino, Gian Piero
International Journal for Educational and Vocational Guidance, v9 n3 p205-219 Nov 2009
The paper presents a survey among 300 employees in Northern Italy to assess the willingness to mentor and identify the factors that affect it. Men and respondents with previous mentoring experience indicate a higher willingness to be a mentor. Willingness is affected by personal characteristics that are perceived as necessary for a mentor and the perceived benefits and drawbacks of mentoring.
